Hostage US 2nd Annual Reception
April 28, 2020, Washington, DC, 5:30pm – 8:30pm

Hostage US has cancelled its 2nd Annual Reception on April 28. If you bought a ticket and would like a refund, please contact Arielle at arielle@hostageus.org. We are grateful that so many of our sponsors have insisted we keep their money to support our vital mission.

Please rest assured, as an organization we do most of our work remotely so our care and support for American hostages and their families continues as normal. For now, let’s all focus on looking after ourselves, our loved ones and our teammates.

Our 2nd Annual Reception will bring together senior representatives from across public and private sectors along with former hostages and their families. The evening is kindly hosted by Sidley Austin LLP. 

The following are our esteemed speakers:

Margaret Brennan

Jim Clapper

Former Director of National Intelligence

Col. Chris Costa (Ret.)

Executive Director of the International Spy Museum

Roy Hallums

Former hostage held in Iraq
