The Forge Fellowship

Reclaiming Public Power in Local Communities This fellowship is a stipended opportunity for 5-8 students currently enrolled at community colleges and public universities that do not have an existing Roosevelt chapter on their campus. Participants will be trained in core research, policy, organizing, and base-building skills, and receive one-on-one guidance from Roosevelt staff and alumni

Finance is no longer channeling our collective investments to productive uses. Instead, it’s using society’s resources to enrich itself at the cost of students, taxpayers, and communities. The story of finance in the economy is an old and simple one- the finance sector grows and protects the savings of individuals and institutions, and pools them

Re:Public

What do the increase in for-profit colleges and private prisons have in common? Unchecked corporate power in our public institutions. Lack of public control over the provision of public goods demands action now. Our future is not for sale. A mainstay in our politics since post World War II and now embedded in our highest political offices,
