Thank You for Attending the 9/11 Informational Seminar at the United Federation of Teachers

December 20, 2019 | Michael Barasch

Thank you for attending the 9/11 Informational Seminar at the United Federation of Teachers. We hope that you learned a lot about the World Trade Center Health Program and Victim Compensation Fund (VCF). We are so grateful to UFA President Mike Mulgrew and Ellie Engler, executive assistant to the President and the director of staff for the UFT.

We are honored that hundreds of you took the time to hear our panel of 9/11 advocates discuss the importance of registering for both programs now, even if you are currently healthy. Now that the free health program and the VCF have been permanently extended, and 68 cancers have been linked to the WTC toxins, it is critical to secure your evidence from witnesses who can attest to your presence in the downtown exposure zone. As Jon Stewart said, “you are entitled to these benefits so access them now!”

I’d like to share a condensed 14 minute video of the event for those of you who weren’t able to attend. I respectfully ask all of you to share the video with your friends, neighbors, work colleagues, fellow students, and anyone else who was in downtown Manhattan on 9/11, or during any part of the following 8 months. Here is the link to watch it:

Also, here are links to some of the press that came out of the event. We are so glad that our message about free health care and compensation is really being heard.




Of course, if you have any questions about the World Trade Center Health Program or the VCF, please call us at 212-385-8000. We are always happy to help.

Thank you for helping me shine a light on this national health crisis. It is our honor to represent the 9/11 community.

With deep respect,
Mike Barasch
