On the 2004 Republican National Convention

Some relatives of people killed on 9/11 say they are considering joining protests or organizing their own, out of a feeling that the Republicans, by holding the convention in New York so close to the anniversary of the attacks, are exploiting it.[...]

"The unifying theme about the Republican convention next year is keep your hands off ground zero," said Rita Lasar, a founder of September Eleventh Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, a group of about 80 relatives of attack victims. "Do not make a political football out of this. This is a place where very close, dear relatives died. It's not the backdrop for a political campaign."
