Many volunteers are modest about their accomplishments, but Jerry Carpenter was even reluctant to be interviewed for this article. “I’m not sure I deserve this recognition,” he said. The facts don’t bear this out. He is the ultimate in grassroots activists.

not the real jerry carpenterNot the real Jerry CarpenterJerry has been involved in the 9/11 Truth movement for several years and has volunteered for AE911Truth since 2009. He worked with Wayne Coste in drafting a letter to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that criticized the NIST reports on 9/11.

Jerry especially enjoys his work on the Public Outreach Team. He has also worked with teams dealing with congressional outreach, cable access, college outreach, and law-enforcement outreach. His local sheriff was deeply moved by the information Jerry gave him. Team Leader Dave Slesinger says, “Jerry has helped immensely in building grassroots support. He’s called at least 1,000 people in recent years.”

Jerry didn’t realize how much he has actually accomplished. I can relate to him on this. We all have a sense of having fallen short of our goal of getting a real investigation into the events of 9/11. But he is a workhorse whose efforts have created large and obvious networks of information and inspiration – as well as innumerable unknown pathways of awareness.

"I'm not sure 
that I deserve 
this recognition." – Jerry Carpenter

Jerry places posters all around town. He stamps each bill of currency he spends with “Investigate 9/11, Demand Truth Now.” Recently a cashier where Jerry made a purchase saw the stamp and thanked him for all he does!

Thank you, Jerry, for being a bright light in a dark world. We are inspired.

Consider becoming an inspiration yourself! You can volunteer on one of our 20 existing teams – or start a team of your own.
