STATEMENT: Roosevelt Network Will No Longer Support Foreign Policy Proposals and Projects
New York, NY—To better support student policymakers and activists at the state and local levels, the Roosevelt Network is moving away from supporting foreign policy proposals and projects for its 10 Ideas publication.
“We want our students to think globally, but act locally,” said National Director, Roosevelt Network, Katie Kirchner. “We believe that international issues are important, and their national consequences are real; however, we have determined that the best way for us to contribute to foreign policy issues is by remembering our theory of change is local, and that US foreign policy initiatives are done at the federal level or through transnational organizations.”
To support the network’s transition away from foreign policy work, a foreign affairs alumni task force has been created to help Roosevelters connect with organizations in the foreign policy sphere. For more details, please contact Eamon Ross.
