Zack volunteered to work with local party organizations, candidates, and municipal governments in Kiev, Donetsk, and Dnipropetrovsk in Ukraine. Teaching the tools of democracy, the values of openness, transparency, and fairness and the process of accountable elections Zack led seminars, discussions and workshops for the newly independent Ukraine.
