FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C. – The Joseph Rainey Center for Public Policy is proud to announce that our co-founder and President Bishop Garrison has been chosen to serve as the Interim Executive Director of the Truman National Security Project.
The Truman National Security Project is a nationwide organization whose diverse leaders came together in the aftermath of 9/11 to shape and advocate for tough, smart national security solutions. The Truman membership includes more than 1,700 post-9/11 veterans, frontline civilians, policy experts, and political professionals from 47 different states.
Along with its sister organization, the Truman Center for National Policy, the Truman National Security Project identifies, trains, and positions rising leaders across America who share their worldview and values, working to shape the debate, fight for policy change, and deliver concrete solutions at the local, state, and national levels.
“I am humbled by the board’s trust and confidence,” said Garrison. “The Truman community means a great deal to me personally, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to help lead it at such a pivotal moment. I thank Michael Breen for his dedication and years of leadership to this organization. He has created an amazing foundation to build upon and a standard to follow that will not soon be forgotten.”
In addition to his new role at the Truman National Security Project, Garrison will continue to serve as the President of the Board of Directors for the Rainey Center.
The Joseph Rainey Center for Public Policy is a post-partisan, 501(c)3 public policy research organization and incubator for diverse, non-traditional emerging policy leaders, named after Joseph Rainey, a former slave who was the first African-American to serve in the United States House of Representatives.
