Highlights of this Year’s Washington OXI Day Foundation’s Awards


Earlier this year, during the 6th Annual Washington Oxi Day Foundation Celebration, awards were given to Vice President Joe Biden and Nadia Murad. They were honored for their inspiration and example of courage, “the same David vs. Goliath courage for freedom, democracy and humanity that was exhibited by the Greek people in WWII.”

During the October 27 black tie gala, Vice President Biden and Nadia Murad shared personal tragedy which they alluded to the courage of the Greek people in 1940 and throughout World War II as they discussed their personal battles.

This video synopsis of the event, produced by our OCN Digital Disciples team offers the highlights of the event.
