The national security ﬁeld does not reﬂect the diversity of America, which makes America less secure. Truman is the leading national security membership organization that attracts, trains and uplifts early- and mid-career national security professionals.
National security institutions are resistant to change and often fail to adapt to new realities. Truman’s inside/outside perspective - in our community we have people currently working in national security institutions, veterans of those institutions, and seasoned observers of them - gives us an ability to make recommendations for modernization and then see them through.
For nearly 20 years Truman has been a leading voice in promoting a values-based foreign policy, from inside and outside of Washington. Truman promotes principled American global engagement through its programming and members’ own diverse activities inside and outside of government.
There is newfound urgency to domestic democratic renewal. Many Truman members are engaged in this ﬁeld in their personal or professional capacity, and many bring global expertise and experience that can be relevant at home. Truman is positioned to be a thought and action leader at the intersection of domestic and foreign policy.
