Roosevelt @ Resources

Whether 17 or 70, Roosevelt exists to find, nurture, and curate the finest minds, supporting their work on the biggest problems – and solutions. We offer them a lifelong intellectual home and the opportunity to create change now and in the future– so join us

In the context of a stagnant public dialogue, the local ideas gap, and increasing disillusionment with a political system incapable of tackling our complex collective challenges, it is more important than ever to invest in a generation of leaders committed to active problem-solving and concrete change in the public sphere.

Our members, organizing on 130 chapters in 40 states, are actively influencing policy on the local, state and national level – from introducing legislation on protections for LGBTQ youth to consulting with local governments on natural disaster flood prevention. Roosevelters write and enact ideas that expand access to power and prosperity — encouraging new voices and new rules.


Get Started

Found or join a chapter. Roosevelt chapters form the beating heart of the network. They’re meeting places, debate forums, and think tanks all in one. With support and guidance from the national team, chapter members decide how to organize themselves and which projects to pursue. The ideas that germinate at the chapter level filter out to become local, state, and national policy solutions.
