A coalition of families of 9/11 survivors and victims filed a public records request on Sept. 8 to multiple New York City agencies requesting documents about the health impacts stemming from the World Trade Center attack 22 years ago.
Congressmembers Dan Goldman (NY-10) and Jerry Nadler (NY-12) expressed their support for the group Monday and urged New York City Mayor Eric Adams to comply with the request.
The coalition includes Benjamin Chevat, director of 9/11 Health Watch, Karen Klingon, Yvonne Baisley, Phil Alvarez, and Charlotte Berwind. Baisley’s brother was FDNY firefighter Robert Fitzgibbon. Alvarez’s brother was NYPD Detective Luis G. Alvarez. Berwind was filing for volunteer firefighter Charles E. Flickinger, Jr.
