Registration is now open for the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s “Anniversary in the Schools” program. This free, annual webinar aims to provide a meaningful way to deepen students’ knowledge about the events of 9/11 and the importance of commemoration.
Participants 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 35-minute program, which will be available on-demand starting Sept. 11, 2018, will feature personal reflections from:
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
The webinar will be interpreted in American Sign Language and captioned. Educators can register for the webinar here.
The webinar is made possible thanks to generous support from the New York Life Foundation.
