GI JOE Comes Up Big At Reed Awards

Last Friday was a big night for the Make US Strong campaign: We won two Reed Awards! The Grammy's of politics, Campaigns and Elections Magazine's Reed awards recognize the very best of political advocacy and communications, so it's a huge honor.

It was a tense night at the awards ceremony - we were up against some of the biggest names in the political world, folks like GMMB, Penn Schoen Berland, and Hackney & Hackney - big firms working with huge budgets.

Our recent, "GI JOE" ad Best Web Independent Expenditure and Best Use of Voiceover Talent.

What's the next award winning project coming out of Truman? On Tuesday, we launched Cycle for Security, a 4,200 mile cross-country tour by Truman Partner Janessa Goldbeck, who's reminding Americans across the nation of the lesson of the greatest generation: International development keeps American safe and strong. Check out the Tour and find out if she'll be biking to a city near you!
