WASHINGTON D.C. - On Friday, May 20th, Truman Center for National Policy will present Linda Thomas-Greenfield, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, with its award for Exceptional Moral Courage in Public Service during #TruCon2022. Last year’s recipient, Mayor of Washington D.C, Muriel Bowser, will present the award.
“Right now, our most fundamental values are being challenged all around the world,” said Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield. “Authoritarians are threatening democracies, violating human rights, and attempting to reshape the world order for their own purposes. This is a moment that calls for moral courage. So it is a real honor to be accepting this award from the Truman Center for National Policy, an organization that is at the forefront of advancing ideas and initiatives that make the world a better, safer, more secure place for us all.”
Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield’s distinguished career includes senior roles in the U.S. Department of State, including serving as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Director General of the Foreign Service and Ambassador to Liberia. Earlier in her career, she held postings in Switzerland, Pakistan, Kenya, Gambia, Nigeria, and Jamaica.
“Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield has set an exceptional example of humanitarianism and responsible global engagement over her three decades of service,” said Mayor Bowser. “Now, as she represents the United States on the world stage as the 31st US Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield continues to be a major force for our nation in times of great global adversity.”
