Join the OPC in an online discussion via Zoom with this year’s Bob Considine Award winners.

Isabel Coles and Rena Effendi of The Wall Street Journal will discuss their winning work, “Children of No Nation,” a series that follows seven siblings among thousands of children whose parents fled their own countries to join Islamic State in Syria. Left trapped in squalid refugee camps without parents or nationality, the children were “unwanted in the West and endangered in Syria.”

RSVPs are required. Links to the Zoom webinar will be emailed to registrants two hours before the program begins.
