Grantee Listed in Time Magazine's Rising Stars of American Politics

Rachel Kleinfeld, co-founder and CEO of the Truman National Security Project and a Ploughshare's Grantee, has been named one of Time Magazine's "40 Under 40" new civic leaders.  

As Time describes, "Kleinfeld, 34, started workshops for young progressives on national-security issues after watching John Kerry lose to George W. Bush in 2004. Her goal: to prove that Democrats can articulate strong and sensible alternatives to GOP defense policies."

The Truman National Security Project is the only organization in the U.S. that recruits, trains and positions the next generation of progressive leaders in U.S. national security.

Telling Time where she sees herself in five years, Kleinfeld said, "I would love for Truman Democrats to be as loud a voice in foreign policy as any major political movement, so I would say running a major political movement that affects the foreign policy of the nation."
