Workers Memorial Commons Foundation, Inc.


Workers Memorial Commons Foundation, Inc. was established in June 22, 2007, to construct and maintain Workers Memorial Commons on the River Walk in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Workers Memorial Commons Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, is managed by a volunteer staff.

The Foundation's goal is to build the Memorial with in-kind services, donated materials and sponsorships from businesses, organizations and individuals. Workers Memorial Commons will be the first memorial that embraces every worker regardless of vocation, ethnic background or economic prominence.

                  Central Sculpture

This bronze fifteen foot central sculpture supporting a section of I-beam from Tower One of the World Trade Center will be displayed in a negative edge reflective pool at the entrance of Workers Memorial Commons. The stylized bronze arms represent every worker killed or injured on the job including the 2749 people who were working and perished on September 11. The bronze arms extend upward out of the rubble illustrating the unrelenting drive to rise and rebuild time and time again.
