On June 24, 2010, President Obama and Russian President Medvedev met in Washington, DC, where they addressed shared challenges and explored opportunities for partnership. In conjuncture with the Presidential Summit, Secretary Clinton hosted a working luncheon with Foreign Minister Lavrov and attended the "Civil Society to Civil Society" Summit (C2C). Secretary Clinton said, "We recognize the critical nature of civil society to a vibrant democracy, and we want to create those relationships between our two countries and between civil society in each country that can assist in answering questions and solving problems... I am one who believes that despite different historical experiences, different cultural backgrounds, there is so much that connects the United States and Russia."What are ways to increase civil society connections between the United States and Russia?
