Our Roosevelt community — current students, young professionals, and alumni — is a nearly-20 year-old intergenerational network of millennials and gen-z, united by our progressive, pro-democracy, post-neoliberal worldview and stewardship of the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. The programs and events listed below overview the ways in which our community comes together to celebrate the diversity of our members; gain meaningful access to premier progressive leaders and thinkers; and build the foundation for deep, life-long personal and professional relationships.
Our programs and events are for current student fellows, members of a sunsetting Roosevelt @ campus chapter, and anyone who has graduated from our programs or chapters in the past. Let us know what you’d be interested in attending using this form.
The Network is bringing FDR’s Fireside Chats into the 21st Century.
Today, in a world where information is ubiquitous, access is about engagement with the experts, activists, and paradigm shifters wielding the levers of power.
So we’re bringing together all generations of Roosevelters — students, young professionals, and alumni — to be in conversation with leading progressive thinkers through our new Fireside Chat virtual event series.
Every six weeks or so, our community of Roosevelters will gather to discuss how the news of the day overlaps and engages with our shared Rooseveltian worldview. As the world shifts and lurches around us, the opportunity to regularly come together will ground us in our values and offer collective learning opportunities about our collective efforts to rebalance power in the economy and our democracy.
In other words: we’re bringing your Rooseveltian political home to your physical home — as you sit around your kitchen table, on your dorm room bed, or perhaps, if you’re lucky, by a fireside.
