Tom Malinowski immigrated to the United States from Communist Poland at the age of 6 and grew up in Princeton. He began his career serving President Clinton on his National Security Council working to end some of the 20th Century’s bloodiest humanitarian crises. Later, Tom became the chief advocate for Human Rights Watch, leading the bipartisan effort with Senator John McCain to end the Bush Administration’s use of torture. Most recently, Tom served as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under President Obama, where he fought to defend the human rights of women and LGBTQ people, to protect workers in our trade agreements, to root out corruption in autocratic regimes, and to stand up to dictators like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un. Tom is currently running for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District to unseat Rep. Leonard Lance.
