[Excerpt] The focus of the Coalition is on one of the enduring lessons of the fire, which is no less true today than in 1911—your choice as an individual to be active or passive in civic engagement has a direct impact on our broader community. We demonstrated a model that melded live and virtual organizing to unite diverse communities in a collaborative process. As each partner stepped forward, he or she was celebrated for his or her individual voice and goals. Together we created a commemoration for the 2011 Centennial that honored those lost in the Triangle Factory fire and continued to work towards a world in which conditions like those that led to the Triangle Factory fire will not be tolerated.
