Join us as members of the New York City Latinx community share their experiences navigating complex immigration policy, worsening health effects, and socioeconomic challenges while serving the city as first responders, volunteers, organizers, and caregivers. This panel will build on the museum’s New York City 9-11 Collecting Initiative to highlight the stories of the Latina/o/x experience in the September 11 narrative. This program is hosted collaboratively by the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health, the Consulate General of Mexico in New York, the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington D.C., and the National Museum of American History.

The conversation may be accessed live on the Museum’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/americanhistory) and YouTube page (https://www.youtube.com/c/nationalmuseumofamericanhistory).
