Statement by America250 President & CEO Joseph Daniels on the appointment of Rosie Rios

“Having worked with Rosie both at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and through her role on the Commission, I am thrilled to have her vision and leadership guiding the Semiquincentennial Commission.

Rosie is a uniter who brings a wealth of experience, an inclusive perspective, and a respected track record of serving the American people. She has dedicated her life to helping our nation live up to its ideals of liberty, freedom and justice through public service and civic engagement.
