YOUR MISSION for our 9/11 survivors:


Published on Apr 13, 2015

Tell your Representatives in Congress to Co-sponsor the renewal of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. Text 911 to 877877 to be connected to your representative.

 Please help us get the message out and share this video, by email, Facebook and Twitter.  Please join in telling your Member of Congress to join the bipartisan supporters and co-sponsor the  James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act.

Zadroga 9/11 Health Act to Expire Unless Congress Takes Action

“Without this program, thousands upon thousands of people will be devastated financially, emotionally, physically, and mentally.  They need the support of Congress.  They gave their lives to take care of other people and they deserve to be treated as long as they live.”

-- Dr. Ellen Koffler, Cancer Care Coordinator, World Trade Center Health Program
Today, advocates for 9/11 first responders and survivors released [the above] new video featuring Americans who are suffering from 9/11-related illnesses and need help from Washington.  The James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which was signed into law in 2011, will expire unless Congress takes action now to renew it.  The legislation provides health care and economic compensation to those who lost their health as well as to the families of those who died since 9/11 from related injuries.
Please watch the video, tell others about it, and take action to help ensure the Zadroga law is renewed.

SIGN UP to take action at http://www.renew911health.org.

TELL CONGRESS to renew the 9/11 health law by texting "911" to 877877, or by calling  888-701-7499  toll free to be connected to your representatives.

The video was produced by E-18 Media with the generous assistance of the International Association of Fire Fighters.

Citizens for the Extension of the James Zadroga Act is a coalition of advocates who are working to make sure that Washington does the right thing and renews and extends the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.  More than 30,000 sick and injured 9/11 responders and survivors depend on the medical treatment and the compensation programs provided by this law.
