What our visitors are saying...

Thank you for compiling so much of this vital history into one website. I am the great great grand daughter of one of the victims, Maria Grazia Gullo Floresta, and it's so important to me to protect the legacy of the Triangle Fire. We have to remember the sacrifice of these 146+ individuals, and continue to fight for the rights of workers nationally and internationally.
