The 106th Anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire
Official Commemoration Friday, March 24th, 11:30am- 1:00pm
On Friday, March 24 we will gather to remember the lives lost 106 years ago. We will gather together to recommit to the fight to protect all workers. Whether your workplace is a garment factory, a non-union construction site, a nail salon, a classroom or anywhere in between, let us remember the lessons of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. Worker protection cannot be passive. Worker protection takes action, and we must stand together as a movement that relies on determination, solidarity, and hope for a better future. See you in the streets!
The Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition is building a permanent art memorial to the victims
and legacy of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. The memorial will be erected on the very site
of the historic fire, at the corner of Greene Street and Washington Place in lower Manhattan.
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory memorial, designed by Richard Joon Yoo and Uri Wegman, will feature graceful steel panels that will engage passers-by both up-close and from afar. Steel panels will curve around both sides of the building, with the names of victims cut into an upper panel and reflected onto a lower one.
