TEN IDEAS POLICIES

What we're working on now
 

Write a policy proposal!

Six Issue Areas

  • Education

  • Economy 

  • Human Rights

  • Democratic Access

  • Health Care

  • Energy & Environment

In the fall of each year, undergraduate students from across the country submit their policy proposals with the hopes of being published in print or online by Roosevelt Institute National.

 

After a competitive evaluation process, the top 10 policy submissions are published each year in the 10 Ideas journal, and an unrestricted amount of outstanding ideas are published online. 10 Ideas policy proposals demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion and reinforce Roosevelt's mission to strengthen public goods and public power.

Want to learn more?

Have an idea? Don't worry if you've never written a policy proposal before, we'll help you! 

We lay out the process from idea to research to finished policy, come to our meetings to learn more.

Get Published and advocate for the issues you care about!
