Terry Strada is a mother, 9/11 widow, Special Interest Advocate and National Chair for 9/11 Victims’ Families & Survivors United for Justice Against Terrorism. In this role, Terry serves as liaison between the 9/11 victims’ families & survivors, the United States Congress and Media.
From her home in New Jersey, Terry traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with Senators, Representatives, House and Senate leadership offices, as well as the Legislative Directors who are responsible for national security and terrorism legislation. After years of working to enact legislation in Congress, Terry is now focusing her attention on the rising threat of Political Islam in America.
Terry helped create a grassroots campaign to advocate for declassification of the redacted 28 pages from the Joint Congressional Inquiry Into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attack of September 11, 2001. Her efforts paid off and upon release of nearly all material, it was illustrated categorically that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia played a role in aiding and abetting some, if not all of the 19 hijackers while here in this country.
But Terry Strada wasn’t finished. She then turned her full attention on the enactment of JASTA (Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act). She spearheaded a bipartisan movement on Capitol Hill, which called for the utilization of our civil justice system for terrorist victims' families as a tool against the enormous amount of financial support stemming from the Gulf region and in to terrorist organizations like al Qaeda, ISIS and Boco Haram to name a few.
In spite of a multi-million dollar anti- lobbing campaign paid for by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Obama Administration’s misguided attempts to derail the legislation, Terry organized a protest of President Obama’s pledge to veto JASTA. After the President’s veto message was returned to Congress, Congress handed President Obama his one and only veto override of his tenure with an overwhelming vote of 97-1 in the Senate and 348-77 in the House of Representatives. On September 28, 2016, JASTA became LAW OF THE LAND.
Terry Strada is published in multiple news outlets and has frequently been interviewed on national radio shows and television news agencies, including CNN, Fox Business, BBC International, the Today Show, Fox News, The Hill, Daily Caller and more. She’s also been a featured speaker at multiple press conferences in Washington, DC and various events in New York City.
