Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, the institute works to "create a nation where everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity." It maintains two core programs: The Four Freedoms Center think tank and the Campus Network, the nation’s largest student policy network. The former concentrates on "the intersection of structural changes in the economy and the myriad challenges facing low-wage and middle-class workers." The Campus Network and its related Alumni Network of 5,000 members work to develop the next generation of civic leaders—engaging 10,000 students on more than 120 college campuses in 38 states across the country as they construct and pursue policy reforms. This grant will support the institute as it continues to refine and expand these programs.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate and Economic Transformation Program  
The Climate and Economic Transformation Program at the Roosevelt Institute conducts research and policy work to leverage the power of government to decarbonize and democratize our economy, and build more equitable and sustainable industries and trade. The Roosevelt Institute provided foundational research and leadership to the economic case for large-scale investments in decarbonization and environmental justice. The scholarship of the Roosevelt Institute and the grassroots networks that Roosevelt partners with will similarly inform the implementation of federal climate investment legislation to ensure this new funding drives forward a just and democratic transition to clean energy.
