Lorelei--who is originally from Farmington, NM--works to educate elected leaders and the public about today's real security need and how to bring our policy tools into alignment with new threats. Part of her goal is to bring more diverse voices into national security decision making.
In addition to working with the underground democracy movements of eastern Europe in 1989, Lorelei's professional background includes teaching at Stanford University's Center on Conflict and Negotiation, working on bipartisan national security education in Congress, and working as a professional mediator in both domestic and international conflict resolution settings. She recently co authored "A Woman's Guide to Talking About War and Peace" which is available free online at allianceforpeacebuilding.org.
