9/11 Victims’ Compensation
Funding is about to run out for the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund. Many 9/11 survivors and first responders suffer from chronic and life-threatening illnesses as a direct result from exposure to toxins at Ground Zero. If the Fund is not permanently authorized, many of these people will be abandoned to foot their own medical bills.
1. Sign Jon Stewart’s petition at MoveOn.org:
2. Contact your MoC and ask them to support the bipartisan bill “Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund" to authorize full, permanent funding for the victims and families of the 9/11 attacks.
