Washington, DC — October 29, 2018 — Peace Action has announced its endorsement of Tom Malinowski for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District. Peace Action is a national grassroots organization working to advance nuclear disarmament, promote government spending priorities that support human needs, encourage real security through international cooperation and human rights, and support nonmilitary solutions to international conflicts.
“I’m proud to have Peace Action’s support,” said Malinowski. “I believe protecting our national security means empowering the State Department with robust funding and full staffing, pursuing nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament through smart diplomacy, and ensuring that Congress exercises its constitutional check on the executive’s war powers. I look forward to working with grassroots organizations like Peace Action to advance these goals and more in the name of peace and security.”
Paul Kawika Martin, Senior Director for Policy and Political Affairs at Peace Action, who also directs Peace Action’s PAC, said of the candidate, “Tom Malinowski has an impressive career of defending our nation’s interests and fighting for human rights. From his work on President Clinton’s national security council, to his leadership as the Washington Director of Human Rights Watch, to his role as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under President Obama, Malinowski has the experience, the passion, and the principles that will make him a formidable advocate for peace and human rights in Congress.”
Tom Malinowski is the former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor. He also served as Washington Director of Human Rights Watch, and as a Senior Director on the National Security Council.
