Next Generation Blueprint for 2016

Posted by Roosevelt Institute on February 21, 2016

We are proud to present to you, our partner, the Next Generation Blueprint for 2016.

The Blueprint, crowdsourced from 1,000 young people from more than 160 cities, colleges, and universities across the nation, makes a bold claim: It matters who rewrites the rules, not just what rules are written.

As a valued Roosevelt partner, we wanted to share this important moment with you and invite you to be a part of building toward a Rooseveltian future for our country. Check out the Blueprint to learn where Roosevelters—93 percent of whom vote or participate in elections—stand on the key issues this election cycle.

We are also launching a national campaign to get our Blueprint in the hands of candidates and officials at every level—from City Hall to the White House. We’ve identified actions our leaders can take to open the doors of government to our generation and are advocating for an aggressive approach by local, state, and national decision-makers in their first 100 days in office to meet the challenges of our time.

This is our clarion call: It is time to rewrite the rules to benefit all Americans and ensure our generation is at the table to help write new rules moving forward. We live in a period of seismic social and economic shifts that have eroded the basic social contract between government and citizens. We must reimagine the building blocks of our economic, civic, and social well-being for a changing America.
