Network 2015-16 Year in Review

unnamed-2

From building a Next Generation Blueprint with over 1,000 participants to serving on the front lines of sexual assault, privatization, & community engagement, to strengthening our Roosevelt community, 2016 has been a huge year for Roosevelt’s Network.

We began this year with a bold mission: “This year, Roosevelt will be unavoidable in our mission to change the way young people are involved in the policy process. Our chapters will take their policy ideas to as many decision makers and sources of power as possible, pushing for concrete change. Roosevelt will bring the new American majority into the policy process– -young people from institutions, communities, and backgrounds who are often relegated to the sidelines. By pushing innovative, tangible change with people from all cross-sections of the country, we will transform the notion of how policy change happens.”

Here’s how we did in our mission by the numbers!

The point is we are not limited to just conversation because you can impact your community.
