The College Republicans at UC Merced will host a remembrance today for those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, called 9-11 Never Forget.
The event is nonpartisan. The College Republicans will set up a booth in front of the Kolligian Library and will ask volunteers to place U.S. flags in the grass area of the academic quad until the goal of 3,000 flags is reached.
Each flag will represent one person who lost his or her life that day.
The College Republicans at UC Merced was founded in 2008 by a small group of conservative students and was the first political group to form on campus.
For more information, call Matt Bacio at (661) 331-1305.
