Join us on May 17, 2017, for the 4th Annual
Berkeley College National Security Forum


WHEN: Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

WHERE: Berkeley College, 44 Rifle Camp Road, Woodland Park, NJ, 07424

WHAT: The 4th Annual Berkeley College National Security Forum will bring focus to the lives of those impacted by terror attacks on American soil, told from the perspectives of victims, survivors, first responders, and professionals from law enforcement and healthcare. Members of academia, law enforcement, and the legal arena will share personal firsthand accounts and case studies of the after-effects from the consequences of national security threats, as well as insights into the progress that has been made to reduce such challenges to our way of life.

Kathy Sanders, author of Now You See Me: How I Forgave the Unforgivable, will deliver the keynote presentation at this year’s event. Ms. Sanders’ life changed forever on April 19, 1995, when a bomb exploded and destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City, killing her two grandsons Chase and Colton. One of the first to arrive on the scene of the horrific attack, she quickly became the face for media’s coverage of the Oklahoma City bombing. She has since shared her emotional journey of forgiveness with others through public speaking events nation-wide, as well as through numerous national television and radio broadcasts.

Moderators and speakers at this year’s event include active and retired professionals from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Attorney’s Office, U.S. Army, and New York City Police Department, among other public and private entities.
