First Responders

Dr. Faiz Khan, Long Island, NY
Dr. Faiz Khan arrived in NY city when he was a few months old, immigrating with his parents from India. An American Citizen and New York State resident for the past 35 years, he is a practicing physician with dual board specialization in Emergency and Internal medicine; in addition, he holds an assistant professorship in Emergency Medicine. Dr. Khan was on duty in a New York City Emergency Department during the 9/11 attacks and treated victims of the tragedy. Soon after, he was part of the rescue and resuscitation efforts at Ground Zero.

In addition to his duties as physician and mentor for young physicians, Dr. Khan has been active in the peace movement and in bridging understanding between mainstream American political thought and the Islamic World. He serves as an assistant Imam and conducts Friday services in various New York City and Long Island Mosques (including one in TriBeca, 10 blocks up from the Ground Zero site.) He represented the Islamic religion at the post 9/11 services at the UN Chapel. Moreover, Dr. Khan has written and lectured extensively on various topics having to do with the religion of Islam. His audiences have included graduate schools, universities, educators, seminaries, various religous communities, the United Nations NGO community, The New York City Police Department, and the general public at large. Dr. Khan has been featured on both international and national TV and radio. He has been cited in both mainstream and independent press. 

Megan Bartlett, New York City
Megan Bartlett is an emergency medical technician (EMT) amongst the first responders to the 9/11 attacks at the WTC. She is co-founder of Ground Zero for Peace, a group made up of first responders who worked in the World Trade Center rubble. The group has eight vocal members, and some other members who remain behind the scene due to job security and harassment concerns. She and her group have no union support, and no company within the first responder work force has offered endorsement. Megan currently works for Metro Care Ambulance Corporation, the largest private ambulance company in New York City; though recent illness due to exposure to toxic WTC dust has left her unable to work.

On November 19, 2004, the "Justice for 9/11" Steering Committee submitted a Citizens' Complaint and Petition to the offices of the Attorney General of New York State, Eliot Spitzer, citing probable cause for an independent grand jury investigation to examine unsolved crimes committed in connection with the events of September 11, 2001. We are publishing the complete Complaint and Petition online in this space as a living, growing document. 

Nine members of September 11 families, Ground Zero first responders, and citizens of New York have signed on as the first complainants. We call on citizens to support this action, to initiate similar actions in other states, and to sign the online petition of solidarity.
