9/11 Survivor Sujo John To Speak At Freeman Auditorium

Thirteen years after the attack, 9/11 survivor Sujo John will share his incredible story with Penn State on Monday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. at the HUB Freeman Auditorium. 

John began the morning of Sept. 11, 2001 just like any other morning. He arrived at his workplace on the 81st floor of Tower 1, while his pregnant wife began her day on the 71st floor of Tower 2. But, as we all know, that day was not like any other. And just like that, John’s life changed forever. 

John will not only speak about his survival story. He will also be advocating for his organization YouCanFree.Us, which provides freedom and relief to victims of the human trafficking industry. 

John hails from India, and he moved to the States in 2001. The event will be sponsored by the Asian American Christian Fellowship and is free of charge.
