Long Island Viewpoint on WABC-TV interviewed Associate Professor of Rhetoric Mary Anne Trasciatti about her work with the Remember Triangle Fire Coalition Inc, which is spearheading an effort to build a permanent memorial at the site of the fire in New York City.

Nearly 150 garment workers, most of them women, died in the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire, which was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of New York City and the nation at the time. The fire led to key improvements in factory standards and the rise of the International Ladies Garment Worker’s Union.
