Accidental Advocates
9/11 WTC Healthcare Champions
Presented by Bridget Gormley and Lila Nordstrom
Tuesday, March 19th - 7:00pm EST
Join us for an inspirational conversation with 9/11 World Trade Center healthcare advocates - Lila Nordstrom and Bridget Gormley.
On 9/11 Lila was a student at Stuyvesant High and has authored the book, Some Kids Left Behind. She is a writer, producer, activist, and the founder of StuyHealth, an advocacy group representing former students who were in lower Manhattan during 9/11 and the resulting cleanup. Lila testified before the House Judiciary Committee on behalf of the estimated three hundred thousand NYC community members eligible for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
Bridget created the film Dust following the death of her father, FDNY firefighter William Gormley who succumbed to 9/11-related illness. Dust chronicles the surge in post-9/11 related illnesses and cancers that are turning survivors into victims.
Lila and Bridget will share their personal journey and how their circumstances thrust them into activism at an early age. Through their collective efforts, they have advocated tirelessly to promote medical and mental healthcare for 9/11 survivors and responders.
Participation is free and registration is required. Register today and join us on March 19th.
