With your help, the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition is building the national memorial to honor the victims of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire and to honor the legacy of reform their deaths inspired.
Good news: we’re close to our goal!
Because of your generosity and the generosity of working people from around the nation, we are in sight of a fall 2023 unveiling of the Triangle Fire Memorial, which will rise nine stories high on the very building that housed the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in Greenwich Village, New York City.
Despite the pandemic-related challenges of the past two years, we are close to meeting the $2.9 million in costs associated with building the Triangle Fire Memorial.
But we’re not there yet!
We encourage you to join us and be part of history.
No contribution is too small, and any donation is gratefully appreciated. Donations of $25,000 or more will be recognized on the Triangle Fire Memorial donor recognition plaque permanently affixed to the exterior of the building.
In 1911, 146 workers lost their lives in a tragic and avoidable fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in lower Manhattan.
In the ashes of the Triangle fire rose the modern labor movement. Now, all these years later, working people from around the nation are joining together to build a national memorial to those workers and to honor the legacy of reform their deaths inspired.
The Triangle Fire Memorial construction is underway!
