Visiting the mural at the High School of Fashion Industries was an amazing experience. Its location within the school’s auditorium is particularly interesting. The audience is mainly high school students who are studying some of the same trades that the workers in the Triangle Fire were engaged in. In this way, students are constantly reminded of how the ILGWU helped change the garment industry, of which they are now a part.
