Monica Gabrielle

For Monica Gabrielle, finding out how 9/11 happened, why people died unnecessarily, and whether those deaths could have been prevented was far more important than being financially compensated for her loss. Monica opted to file a lawsuit in the United States District Court. Monica believes the U.S. government impeded the 9/11 litigation by refusing to hand over documents it claimed would compromise national security. Though Monica eventually settled her case, she has not stopped fighting for justice for September 11th families and future potential victims. As the co-chairwoman of the Skyscraper Safety Campaign, she lobbies for more stringent building codes and safety in skyscrapers so that what "happened to Rich being trapped in a building will not happen again."
