NY912 is a cooperative effort of the 912Project groups of New York State to discuss statewide issues, and to help people find and plug into their local 912Project group.

We also work cooperatively with various ‘Patriot’ and ‘Tea Party’ groups in NY State to move forward our principles of educated members who believe in a limited, Constitutional government.

What is the meaning of 9.12?

9.12 was inspired by nationally syndicated radio talk show host Glenn Beck in response to a caller, Ed in Connecticut, who felt guilty and alone because he had “tuned out”  because of direction that he felt the country has taken.  Glenn wanted to prove to this caller that he was not alone and asked for a month to do it.  On February 10th, 2009, he began by compiling a list of 9 principles and 12 values that all Americans can agree upon and asked listeners and viewers to send a photo if they agreed with 7 of the 9 principles.  On March 13th, 2009 he aired a special edition of his television show, featuring a mosaic made from thousands of pictures that had been sent in.

This was the beginning of the 9.12 Project.

Coincidentally, 9.12 also is a reference to the day after the September 11, 2001 attacks by radical Islamic terrorists that resulted in the deaths of over 3,000 Americans.  9.12, as many will remember, was a day that many Americans came together and joined as a nation in mourning and determination to bring the people responsible, to justice.  It was a day when we all were just plain Americans.  9.12, in addition to being a reference to values and principles, is also a movement to re-unite all Americans with the understanding that we have more that we can agree on than things that divide us, such as political party, ethnicity or religion.
