Dear Colleague,

Join the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and students from around the world to commemorate the 17th anniversary of 9/11 by participating in an interactive webinar on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 and WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2018. This FREE program connects students and teachers with Museum staff and guest speakers to learn about the attacks and the importance of commemoration. 

During the 30-minute program, you will be introduced to exhibitions within the Museum, learn about 9/11 through personal stories, and have the opportunity to ask questions through a live chat with Museum staff.

Speakers include:

Chief Joseph W. Pfeifer, current chief of counterterrorism and emergency preparedness for the FDNY and the first chief to arrive at the World Trade Center on the morning of 9/11

Lolita Jackson, a survivor of both the 1993 and 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center

Scott Strauss, a New York City Police Department officer who helped rescue a Port Authority Police Department officer trapped under debris after the collapse of the Twin Towers

Lila Nordstrom, a student on 9/11 at Stuyvesant High School, located next to the World Trade Center, who founded StuyHealth, an advocacy group for young adults impacted by 9/11 and its aftermath

There will be an exclusive preview of the program available for administrators and teachers beginning September 4 at 8:00 a.m. (EST). This can be accessed at
