About this Event

Liz Frank, Executive Director of Hostage US, will host fellow Board members Michael Scott Moore, journalist and former hostage held captive in Somalia for over two and a half years, and Josh Geltzer, former Senior Director for Counterterrorism at the National Security Council.

This is a unique opportunity to gain a first-hand understanding of the plight of hostages and their families when in captivity and the issues they face when they return home.

This is the first part in a three-part series. We hope you will join us for all three.

Tuesday, October 27, 7:30pm EDT – Jessica Buchanan, former hostage in conversation with Matthew Espenshade, former Special Agent with the FBI

November, date TBD – Roy Hallums, former hostage held in Iraq for 311 days
