Society for Humanistic Judaism
Commemorates 100th Anniversary of Triangle Waist Factory Fire

Whereas 100 years ago, on March 25, 1911, 146 workers died in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York City because the exit doors were  locked; and

Whereas most of the victims were young immigrant women struggling in a new land, unable to affect their unsafe working conditions; and

Whereas, as a response to these workers’ sacrifice,  a national movement was spawned to enact occupational safety standards and establish safe working conditions for all workers,

Therefore be it resolved:  

  • That the Society for Humanistic Judaism acknowledge and commemorate the tragedy of all those who died in or were touched by this tragedy; and
  • That the Society for Humanistic Judaism acknowledge that their sacrifice demanded that all workers be ensured safer working conditions: and 
  • That the Society for Humanistic Judaism continue to encourage legislation that guarantees safe working conditions for all workers.

— April 2011
