Survivor Recalls the Collapse of the Towers
William Jimeno, a now-retired Port Authority police officer, was just nine months into his career when he responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11 and survived the collapse of the Twin Towers.
We are pleased to present the next program in our When the World Changes digital conversation series, “The Domestic Terrorist Threat,” at 2:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, February 18.
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI, domestic violent extremism currently poses the greatest terrorist threat to the United States. In the aftermath of the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, Asha Rangappa, former FBI special agent and now a senior lecturer on national security law at Yale University, and Greg Ehrie, a 22-year veteran of the FBI and now vice president for law enforcement & analysis at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), reflect upon the national security challenges domestic terrorism poses for our national security.
The When the World Changes series is dedicated to offering insight, empathy, and expertise toward past and present challenges by drawing on lessons learned from 9/11 history: how strength was expressed in a time of sorrow, how unimaginable problems were solved, and how tragedy and adversity were met with resilience and hope.
