Update: Watch webinar here [registration required.]
The New York Life Foundation is sponsoring the "Anniversary in the Schools” webinar, commemorating the 17th Anniversary of the tragic events of September 11th. The program, to be broadcast from inside the The National September 11 Memorial Museum, connects participants with museum staff and guest speakers to learn about the attacks and the importance of commemoration.
Participating teachers and students will be introduced to exhibitions within the museum, hear personal stories about the attacks from first responders and survivors, and have the opportunity to ask questions through a live chat with museum staff.
The featured speakers at the event include: Chief Joseph W. Pfeifer, the 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; Scott Strauss, an NYPD officer who helped rescue a Port Authority police officer trapped under debris; Lila Nordstrom, founder of StuyHealth, an advocacy group for young adults affected by 9/11 and its aftermath; and Lolita Jackson, a survivor of both the 1993 and 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.
