The Franklin D. Roosevelt Distinguished Public Service Awards honor individuals whose careers exemplify President Roosevelt’s extraordinary dedication to public service and seek to inspire a renewed national commitment to the principles for which FDR fought.
DPSA recipients have dedicated their lives to the public good, never limiting themselves to what seemed possible when they began. Each year, we celebrate their courage, commitment, and values.
We hope you will join us in recognizing our 2021 honorees:
Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee
