James Zadroga 9/11 Bill Passes in the Senate & the House!


GREAT news folks!  A retooled James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act passed in the Senate this afternoon — and the House acting with amazing speed just did the same!

This is fabulous news for the 9/11 first responders who have endured so much over the last years.

Special thanks to all Girlboxing friends who drummed up what support they could to get this bill passed.

We should all send a collective THANK YOU to Jon Stewart for his amazing efforts — with a further thank you to New York’s Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who has tirelessly kept this bill alive over its many iterations.

For further information links are here and here.
