One year ago, representatives of progressive college students across America came together at the Roosevelt Policy Expo in DC and at the FDR Home in Hyde Park, NY, to discuss the most pressing issues facing our generation.After setting ourselves three challenges, we returned back to our college and university campuses and performed a year's worth of public policy research. We held conferences, conducted public fora, got small groups together for public policy brainstorming sessions, wrote papers and theses, and met with extracurricular groups. As the year came to a close, we selected the best 25 ideas that we wanted to bring to the public policy discussion.
I spent a couple of hours this afternoon reading through TRI's ideas, and I was very impressed. Given that my Reagan era generation focused on making as much personal money and not a lot on how we could make things better for all of us, it's refreshing to see politically engaged and committed young people thinking bigger picture.
What do you think of their ideas?
