“The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.”
~Franklin Delano Roosevelt
The Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College is proud to present The Road to November: Exploring America’s Challenges on the way to Election 2012, a programming series dedicated to exploring and engaging the nation’s challenges preceding the November 2012 Presidential election. Inaugurated by the March 14-15 LBJ Presidential Symposium, The Road to November will feature panel discussions, lectures, book discussions, debate watch parties etc. — that will culminate, fittingly, on election night, November 7, 2012, nearly 80 years to the day from FDR’s first electoral victory, which he celebrated at Roosevelt House.
Distinguished guests and faculty members will present a diverse array of topics in which they will offer insight and historical perspective to issues of today, as well as invite debate by engaging the student body and the broader community in the democratic process. We look forward to seeing you at an event in the near future.
