The goal of the program is to enhance opportunities for informed public debate on US security policy and empower citizens to engage in discussion and raise important national security issues with policy makers at every level. The Outreach Coordinator will be responsible for helping to organize these trips, including identifying and reaching out to local partner groups and institutions, setting up events, communicating with local media, and collaborating with partner organizations. The Outreach Coordinator will also travel on several of these trips.
Our “online” outreach mission is to take advantage of developments in online communications to reach out to our online supporters and to identify and cultivate new supporters.
