Mission

Reestablishing the Bipartisan Center in American Foreign Policy

Partnership for a Secure America (PSA) is a nonprofit founded by former U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton and U.S. Senator Warren Rudman to advance bipartisanship on today’s critical national security and foreign policy challenges.

We believe that the United States is being ill-served by the growing partisan divide surrounding its national security and foreign policy. Although partisan rancor has traditionally stopped “at the water’s edge,” this tradition of bipartisan cooperation has eroded significantly in recent years in negative and harmful ways.

Policy differences must always be debated, but growing partisan bitterness dangerously interferes with substantive discussion of our national security and foreign policy. The Partnership for a Secure America is a not-for-profit organization created to address this growing problem and help foster bipartisan, consensus driven, national solutions to the major national security and foreign policy challenges facing our country.

The Partnership for a Secure America's goals are:

To heighten public awareness of and support for a bipartisan national security and foreign policy;


To bring leading Democrats and Republicans together to seek common ground in national security and foreign policy; and

To accomplish the above tasks through the use of the most effective tools of modern communications.
To Achieve these ends, PSA:

Develops and seeks bipartisan consensus on a series of national security and foreign policy issues;


Works to build coalitions to support recreating the bipartisan center in American national security and foreign policy;

Conducts a national free and paid media campaign using the most sophisticated communication tools based on joint, bipartisan positions; and

Organizes national events including town hall meetings, conferences, and speaker series to support the bipartisan center in American national security and foreign policy.
