Are you wondering what you can do on the upcoming 9/11 anniversary to make a real difference in the fight for 9/11 Truth and Justice? Here’s something that will take you only five minutes — but you need to do it now!

Submit a request for your member of Congress to meet with the commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District on September 11, 2019! (See below for the info you'll need.)

Commissioners Christopher Gioia and Joseph Torregrossa are traveling to D.C. on the 11th to discuss the historic resolution they passed last month with as many members of Congress as possible — and they need your help to make their trip a success.

Joining them at each meeting will be Bob and Helen McIlvaine, who lost their son Bobby on 9/11, and AE911Truth founder Richard Gage. Together, the five of them will inform your representative about the ongoing grand jury investigation in Lower Manhattan and they will urge him or her to introduce the Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act — the first step toward Congress launching its own investigation.

You don’t have to travel to Washington, D.C., for this meeting (most of you will be requesting this meeting on our team’s behalf), but if you live in the area or you wish to travel to D.C. on the 11th, having you in the meeting would be even better!

Again, this will take you just five minutes. Below is the simple information you’ll need to submit when you request the meeting!

Short Description of Your Organization

The Franklin Square and Munson Fire District oversees a fire department serving the town of Franklin Square just outside of Queens, New York. One member of the Franklin Square Fire Department, Thomas J. Hetzel, was killed on 9/11 in performance of his duties for the New York Fire Department. Many members of the Franklin Square Fire Department worked at the WTC site in the weeks and months after 9/11. The five commissioners of the fire district unanimously passed a resolution in July of 2019 supporting the ongoing 9/11 grand jury investigation in the Southern District of New York and calling upon other government entities to open their own 9/11 investigations.

Federal Legislation to Be Discussed

Draft legislation called the Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act, which would establish a select committee in either chamber to reinvestigate the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11.
