Invisible Victims: 9/11 and Undocumented Immigrants

Thursday, October 20, 6 p.m.

It is estimated that of the 2,977 people killed on 9/11, 67 were undocumented immigrants – the majority having been workers at the Windows on the World restaurant atop the North Tower. Dr. Sekou Siby shares his own 9/11 experience as one of these workers, and is 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, to highlight the stories of undocumented immigrants who died on 9/11, while discussing the complex legal processes of proving their existence and ensuring they would not be forgotten.

Through the fourth annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum Summit on Security, presented by Fiserv, public programs in 2022 are made possible by Bloomberg, Craig Newmark Philanthropies, IronNet, Marsh McLennan, Roger W. Ferguson, Jr., Greater New York Hospital Association, Montefiore Medicine and Morgan Stanley.
