It has been a while since our last newsletter! The Roosevelt@Boston core team has been hard at work recruiting new grads from campus chapters and supporting the Roosevelt Institute’s Next Generation Blueprint for 2016. The Blueprint (you can access the full version here) outlines the top policy issues and priorities for legislators based on a survey of 1,000 young people on 160 campuses across the country — it’s definitely worth a read!
Please join us on Tuesday, July 19th from 6:30-8:30 PM at Market Lounge (21 Broad Street in Boston) to grab a drink and network with Roosevelt members and folks who are new to the Boston chapter. RSVP here.
We’ll also discuss a new research project focused on youth incarceration alternatives in Massachusetts’ juvenile justice system, which connects directly to the Human Rights section of the Blueprint.
Naoka Carey, Executive Director of Citizens for Juvenile Justice, and Erin V. Freeborn, Executive Director of Communities for Restorative Justice, will join us to talk about the work their organizations are doing on these important issues.
As always, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, want to learn more or get involved.
