In Our Son's Name: A Documentary by Gayla Jamison

Orlando and Phyllis Rodriguez lost their only child, Greg, during the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Shortly after this terrible tragedy, they penned a poignant open letter to President Bush describing the pain but speaking out against military action that might be taken by the

U.S. government as a result. The letter galvanized a community of others who had suffered the same fate that day, which led to the launch of a national network called September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. Members of that network have also been among the most outspoken voices against torture, extraordinary rendition, and other tactics of the U.S. security state.

A new documentary film, “In Our Son’s Name,” tells their powerful story, and that of Phyllis’ remarkable friendship that emerged with the mother of accused 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui. As part of a series of debut screenings in North Carolina, Phyllis Rodriguez will speak at Warren Wilson College following an April 13th screening in the Canon Lounge at the Gladfelter Building (adjacent to the campus' main dining hall).

Also, Phyllis and fellow Peaceful Tomorrows member David Potorti will join Frank Stasio on Thursday, April 7th at 12:20 p.m. for the middle segment of that day’s “The State of Things” live broadcast from WUNC (syndicated statewide through NPR affiliates).
