An International Peacebuilder

Sandy was privileged to be part of the team which produced and managed two groundbreaking international conferences, the 1988 and 1990 Soviet-American Citizen Summits hosted by Rama Jyoti Vernon and Barbara Marx Hubbard.  The contribution these international conferences made to ending the Cold War and building more peaceful Soviet-American relations during the Gorbachev era cannot be measured. Sandy (then Sandy Jeffrey) published the "Citizen Diplomacy Progress Report 1989" to document the more than 250 joint projects emerging from those Track II Diplomacy efforts. The book is now a collector's item available through Amazon.com.  In addition, from 2009 through 2011, Sandy served as the North American Regional Coordinator of United Religions Initiative, a global interfaith network that cultivates peace and justice.
