We believe our generation has the most to lose or gain in this election. That’s why we came together to build the Next Generation Blueprint for 2016. Crowdsourced from more than 1,000 people in our network from 160+ cities, colleges, and universities, the Blueprint makes a bold claim: It matters who rewrites the rules, not just

Rewrite the Rules

Inequality is a choice. Since the 1980s, trickle-down economics has shrunk the middle class and increased the concentration of wealth at the top. But it doesn’t have to be this way: We can rewrite the rules that structure our economy and society to promote both stronger growth and shared prosperity. More and more Americans are

Roosevelt boasts a nationwide presence, engaging a network of emerging thinkers and doers who believe that when the rules don’t work for everyone, its their responsibility to re-write them. Roosevelt chapters form the beating heart of that network. They’re meeting places, debate forums, and think tanks all in one. With support and guidance from the national team,

Women and Families
