We had some impressive speakers lined up, including former U.S. ambassadors, cease-fire negotiators, and internationally recognized human rights attorneys.

Our featured speaker was Ms. Sara Hossain, a human rights attorney who received the International Women of Courage Award in 2016 from the United States Secretary of State, John Kerry, “for empowering women and girls, and for giving voice to the voiceless in Bangladesh through [her] relentless legal advocacy.”
