Event on Wednesday, August 9th at 11:00 AM



On Opening Day of “World Trade Center” the Movie,

a Demand for Help for Real-Life 9/11 Responders



-Rep. Maloney, 9/11 Responders and Family Members Renew Call

for President Bush to Meet with Sick/Injured Responders-



“The heroes of the movie were freed from the rubble, but thousands of

9/11 heroes remain trapped by their illnesses and lack of compensation.”



WHO: Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-Manhattan, Queens), elected officials TBA, 9/11 responders and family members of ailing and deceased responders, representatives from the Unsung Heroes Helping Heroes Foundation and the Sierra Club.



WHAT: Press Conference to demand that President Bush meet with Ground Zero responders so that he can hear their stories and pleas for help firsthand. Maloney will also announce a new website for sick and injured responders.



WHY: We are in the middle of a gathering health crisis. Each month, more and more Ground Zero responders are seeking treatment for the first time. The illnesses of responders already in treatment are proving to be unexpectedly severe and persistent. Most ominously, at least six but perhaps dozens more 911 responders have died as a direct result of illnesses that in all likelihood were sustained at Ground Zero.
