In today’s chaotic political environment, it’s hard to have a serious debate about economic policy, despite its deep and real impact on people’s lives. But we seem to be at a turning point as Americans look for credible answers to the economic insecurity so many of us feel.
On November 13, join Roosevelt President and CEO Felicia Wong and leaders of Roosevelt’s advocacy and student network teams to discuss trends in today’s policy debate and how Americans are responding. We’ll dig into several key questions:
- Research from the Voter Study Group shows that the new tax law is historically unpopular, including among many who voted for Trump. What are Americans’ expectations for economic opportunity and security—and are they open to progressive tax policy and other structural economic reforms?
- Young people across the country—from New York to Tennessee—are enthusiastic about leaders who share their values for a just society. How do we build civic infrastructure and reshape the progressive talent pipeline to take advantage of this energy?
- Making the leap from bold ideas in public debate to a governing agenda is never easy, especially in today’s environment. How can we prepare for opportunities to drive a progressive agenda—while also being ready for an uphill climb?
Featuring Roosevelt Institute President and CEO Felicia Wong, VP of Advocacy and Policy Steph Sterling, and National Director of Roosevelt’s student network Katie Kirchner.
