Roosevelt is proud to present our 10 Ideas journal! Over the last decade, this journal has elevated the ideas of young people across the country seeking to not only rewrite the rules for their communities, but to also foundationally shift who gets to write them.
10 Ideas is the Roosevelt Network’s annual program that generates student policy proposals. Each year, students research, write, and advocate for ideas that are generated through this program’s trainings and workshops. 10 Ideas policy proposals demonstrate our commitment to equity and inclusion, and our mission to strengthen the public goods that provide critical services and resources for us all. Across our seven issue areas — education, economy, human rights, democratic access, healthcare, energy & environment, and foreign policy – Roosevelters are moving the country toward a new economic and political system: one built by many for the good of all.
In the fall of each year, undergraduate students from across the country submit their policy proposals for a competitive evaluation process with the hopes of being published in print or online. The top ten policy submissions are published each year in our 10 Ideas Journal, and an unrestricted amount of outstanding ideas are published online. Check out the work we’re doing across the issue areas by visiting the issue area pages below.
