About Us

Roosevelt's entirely new network!

During our time as students, we felt politically engaged and empowered. Now that we have entered the professional world, it is easy to feel disconnected from the progressive movement. We are pleased to announce the creation of Roosevelt Institute | Pipeline with chapters already launching in New York, DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Detroit, Little Rock, Miami, St. Louis, New Orleans and Nashville!  The Pipeline seeks to recreate a sense of community and empowerment among young professionals and offer opportunities for leadership development and political advocacy -- providing them an outlet to engage substantively in change-making through their ideas and actions on both a local and national level.

Roosevelt Institute | Pipeline members participate in a broad range of activities, including national fellowships, training opportunities, social events, speaker series, media placements, and Think Impact programming.
If you’re a young professional who wants to make a difference, we welcome your input, ideas, and active participation as we build the Pipeline and create new progressive infrastructure.
