As Deputy Director of the Network at the Roosevelt Institute, Alyssa Beauchamp manages a diverse portfolio of undergraduate research fellowship programs, oversees the annual 10 Ideas publication process, and develops and executes the Network’s robust research and advocacy training curriculum. In collaboration with the entire Network team, she also provides support to National Leadership students and advises on Network expansion initiatives. In addition to working with current students in the Roosevelt Network, Beauchamp supports Alumni engagement programming.
Motivated by her deep commitment to justice and equity, Alyssa’s career is a winding road of civil rights advocacy, undergraduate student leadership development, progressive movement-building, and social justice education. A graduate of Wellesley College (B.A.) and Indiana University-Bloomington (M.S.Ed.), her love of teaching and cultivating community to create change has taken her from Washington, DC to Bloomington, IN, and now back to Boston. Before coming to Roosevelt, Beauchamp spent the last two years cultivating partnerships with progressive nonprofits, organizers, and candidate training programs for historically underrepresented communities at ActBlue. Her advocacy and organizing work is also rooted in her prior work experiences on the Workforce Development team at UnidosUS (formerly the National Council of La Raza), the National Partnership for Women & Families, and supporting USAID funded international development and humanitarian aid at programs at Global Communities.
Standing on the shoulders of her Queer and Latinx ancestors, Alyssa is excited to apply a cross-section of her graduate work, experience at multiple national civil rights advocacy institutions, and perspective as a progressive movement builder to the important work of supporting and growing the Roosevelt Network.
