Upcoming Public Programs

As we approach the milestone 20th anniversary of 9/11, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s Winter/Spring 2021 public program season will explore a range of topics reflecting on the ongoing impacts and continued resonance of the attacks, their historical context, and their aftermath.

While onsite Museum programming remains temporarily suspended, we are pleased to extend When the World Changes, a digital conversation series 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.

20 Years Since 9/11: Confronting the Challenges of Recovery

Wednesday, May 26, 2:00 p.m. ET

To mark the Museum’s annual commemoration of the end of the nine-month rescue and recovery period at Ground Zero, NYPD Chief Terri Tobin, Baptist minister Reverend Bill MinsonVicki Arbitrio of the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY), and Dr. Benjamin Luft from Stony Brook’s WTC Monitoring and Treatment Program share their personal recollections of 9/11 and its aftermath and discuss the devastating health issues affecting the rescue and recovery community nearly 20 years after the attacks.
