PROGRAM
Speaker Sharon Tennison was introduced by Ann Cleaver.
Sharon is president and founder of the Center for Citizen Initiatives. She recruited some 30,000 volunteers as citizen diplomats to connect with Soviet citizens starting in the Cold War and continuing through the breakup of the Soviet Union, when she helped establish business training programs.  Given current tensions, she believes we need citizen diplomats more than ever.  In response to questions, she opined that the western press in many cases does not paint a fair picture of Russia or Putin. Check out her full video here.
