This is the second Zoom-cast of the American Committee for US-Russia Accord (ACURA). We are extremely pleased that our guest is Sharon Tennison. Sharon has been on the Board of the American Committee since the beginning and she has been among its most energetic supporters. Sharon is a pioneer in the field of people-to-people diplomacy between the US and Russia. She began her remarkable journey nearly 40 years ago and will Return to Russia this September to lead another Center for Citizen Initiatives (CCI) trip (the first one took place in 1983). In the years between then and now Sharon and CCI have accomplished a remarkable amount as a result of the tens of thousands of people-to-people connections her organization has made with Russian citizens.
