  • Advocacy for just and non-discriminatory policies
  • Reaffirming and raising the visibility of Roosevelt’s historic social justice mission and values of inclusion
  • Providing trusted information and resources with regard to policy changes affecting populations such as immigrants and refugees, international students, religious minorities and LGBTQ community members
  • Promoting the safety of all members of the Roosevelt community
