The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire: 100 Years Later

Today we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and mourn its 146 victims, who perished when they couldn't escape a fire in their factory because exit doors were locked. The tragic event in Lower Manhattan focused the nation's attention on the conditions faced by immigrant garment workers and galvanized efforts for reform. Tragically, dangerous sweatshop conditions continue to exist today, both in the United States (as seen in Made in L.A.) and overseas, and immigrant workers remain particularly vulnerable.

We invite you to explore a number of sites that commemorate the fire and explore its impact on the country and the labor movement:
