Chicago: Inducting 25 new Truman Political Partners
Truman staff and community members from across the Midwest gathered in the Windy City on August 18th & 19th to welcome our newest class of Truman Partners. 25 rising political stars from Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska and Missouri assembled for a challenging weekend of training, policy simulations and communications exercises designed to provide them with the key building blocks for national security leadership.
Classes and workshops included schools of thought in American national security debate and their underlying roots in political philosophy and values, an introduction to US Military operations, organization and culture taught by Veterans from the Truman community, the psychology of fear in politics, communications and messaging techniques for national security debates, and a policy simulation addressing Iran’s nuclear program.
We’re proud to welcome our newest class of Partners to the Truman community!
