In one 24-hour period last week, suicide bombs in Beirut and Baghdad, and a series of bomb and gun attacks in Paris, left more than 200 people dead and scores injured and traumatized. All of the attacks were attributed to ISIS.

Each panelist will speak for 10 minutes, leaving ample time for questions. 

Join us to examine recent terror attacks and the growing international threat posed by ISIS, and discuss how we should respond. 

This event is free and open to the public.
