Rainey Center co-founder and president, Bishop Garrison, has joined the staff of Human Rights First (HRF) as its next director of National Security Outreach and of Veterans for American Ideals. Garrison will also be continuing in his role as president of the Rainey Center.
Garrison said, “Human Rights First is uniquely placed at the confluence of human rights and national security, promoting peace, stability, and American ideals through the protection and support of refugees and asylum seekers. I’m proud to now be part of their legacy.”
Garrison will be succeeding Scott Cooper who led HRF’s national security outreach and founded Veterans for American Ideals. “Bishop is the perfect fit for Human Rights First and Veterans for American Ideals. He brings leadership and experience working across the aisle that will appeal to veteran and non-veteran alike,” said Cooper. "Founding and leading Veterans for American Ideals has been one of my proudest achievements, I'm thrilled that Bishop is stepping into my role."
