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.
