SUNY Binghamton Article

A reporter for the SUNY Binghamtom school paper "Pipe Dream" just wrote an article about health concerns among Stuyvesant graduates. The article wrongly states that we have been working to get health insurance only for the class of '02, but it is otherwise a good article. Check it out here.

Documentary Project

Danielle Turchiano (class of '02) is working on a documentary about students and 9/11 and asked me to post this:

To Stuyvesant High School Students and Faculty Classes 2002-2005:

I know there have been many, many documentaries made about September 11th, the victims, the events, and the impact they have had on our lives, our city, and our world, but for awhile now I've been kicking around the idea of adding one more to that list: one that tells the stories through the eyes of the youth on that day, the eyes of Stuyvesant High School. Our stories are just as emotional and just as worthy of being told of any of them. Right now, I am in the research and development stages of the documentary, and I need your help to find the focal point of the narrative:
originally I wanted to focus on our stories, but more and more lately the health issue creeps up in conversations, and I will be including that in the discussion, although I don't yet know to what capacity. I have written a brief survey for students and faculty to partake in if so interested, and it can be obtained by emailing me at danielletbd@yahoo.com. Any and all feedback/suggestions are welcome!

Thank you!

Mention in LA Times Article

Check out this article from the LA Times, which mentions us. The article discusses the plight of the all but forgotten workers that cleaned up buildings in lower Manhattan after the attacks and are now getting sick and in need of care.

Sen. Clinton On Board/Daily News Coverage

Sen. Clinton has joined us in our fight and just recently sent a letter to the regional administrator of the EPA concerning the health and air quality issues surrounding Stuyvesant students!

The Daily News has covered the issue and the article can be found here!

Leave a comment with your e-mail if you are interested in reading the letter (my lack of web design skills is preventing me from posting it since it's a .pdf file...instructions on how to do that could also be left in the comment box if anybody would like to tell me).

Press Conference Coverage

The press conference was a great success and thanks to all who came! It was nice to see so many people show up in support. You know things are moving along well when a politician organizes a press conference around your issue!
We were covered by NY 1, and Channels 5, 9, and 11 on the 10 o'clock news! We also had articles in all the major local papers, so here are the links:
Daily News
New York Times
New York Post
New York Sun
New York Metro
AM New York
I've also heard rumblings of radio coverage.
Let's keep this momentum going!
Thanks again to everybody who came!
