Giving a voice to immigrant victims of 9/11 and aiding families

We didn't have time to cry," said Joel Magallán, executive director of Asociación Tepeyac, about the months following the 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist attacks.

"It was a very, very intense period, and we only had time to work from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., day in and day out."
