Dr. Monica Hanna, archaeologist and social media activist will discuss the risks she takes to expose the looting problem in Egypt and how her efforts have led to the recovery of stolen objects.

Her talk will follow the 2014 SAFE Beacon Award ceremony, where she will be recognized for her endeavors to save Egypt’s cultural artifacts and history.
