About Truman

Truman is a nationwide community, forged in the aftermath of 9/11, fighting for America’s promise on the battlefield, along the campaign trail, and the halls of government.

Truman unites more than 1,500 veterans, frontline civilians, policy experts, and political professionals with a shared worldview: America is strongest when we utilize all of our tools – defense, diplomacy, development, and democracy to engage the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Through policy innovation and political advocacy at the local and national level, we bring talented leaders to fight for that worldview.

Our Network

The Truman network includes nearly 1,500 top military veterans, political leaders, and policy experts. Fifty-Two (52) Truman members serve as elected officials at the state and local levels. Over 342 of our members have served in the military. More than 230 Truman members are in policy-impact positions on Capitol Hill and in the Administration. Hundreds more have served abroad as diplomats, humanitarian aid workers, development professionals, and corporate and non-profit leaders. Truman has members in forty-seven (47) states, representing every region of the US. The diversity of experiences and expertise in the Truman community means our membership brings an array of solutions to today’s most pressing questions, and can communicate with a wide range of audiences.
