Undocumented Immigrants Share Overlooked Stories of the 9/11 Attack

Among the 3,000 killed in the September 11 attacks were 67 undocumented immigrants, whose accounts have often gone unnoticed in the news from that day. The majority of those victims were workers in the Windows on the World restaurant atop the North Tower. 

Find out their stories and the impact the deaths have had with a talk at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum called ”Invisible Victims: 9/11 and Undocumented Immigrants.” The free event on October 20 will feature one of those workers, Dr. Sekou Siby, who will discuss his own 9/11 experience. Siby will be joined by Alexandra Délano, associate professor of global studies at the New School, and Benjamin Nienass, associate professor of political science and law at Montclair State University. 

The panel will share the stories of the undocumented workers who died on 9/11, along with the complex legal processes involved in proving their existence and ensuring they would not be forgotten. The talk begins at 6 p.m. Register here
