      EVENT DETAILS
      Betsy Bell – Open Borders

      It is 1983, and the anti-war movement Target Seattle is preparing for a trip to Tashkent, Seattle’s Sister City in Uzbekistan. Travelling with three thousand copies of a peace petition, as well as her husband, seventeen-year-old daughter and thirty others, Betsy sees first-hand the risks of travelling as an American to the USSR. She also sees the heart-warming stories of people-to-people connections across political boundaries. With honesty and poise, Betsy chronicles a history of a time when ordinary citizens were transformed into agents of peace.

      Betsy Bell, mother, grandmother, business woman, is a longtime justice activist.
