Roosevelt Institute

Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, the Roosevelt Institute brings together thousands of thinkers and doers—from a new generation of leaders in every state to Nobel laureate—economists working to redefine the rules that guide our social and economic realities. Roosevelters rethink and reshape everything from local policy to federal legislation, orienting toward a new economic and political system: one build by many for the good of all.

The Institute hosts a number of events that celebrate Eleanor and Franklin by honoring those whose work embodies their values and vision today. These include the FDR Four Freedoms Awards and the FDR Distinguished Public Service Awards.

The Roosevelt Institute is the nonprofit partner to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, NY—America’s first presidential library and the only one by a sitting president.

Mr. Schwartz was elected to the board of the Roosevelt Institute in December 2015. Read More
