What would the *other* Roosevelt say about today’s economy?

“No man can be a good citizen unless he has a wage more than sufficient to cover the bare cost of living, and hours of labor short enough so that after his day’s work is done he will have time and energy to bear his share in the management of the community, to help in carrying the general load.” ~ Teddy Roosevelt, speech at Osawatomie, Kansas, August 31, 1910

Teddy Roosevelt knew our economy must create opportunity for all Americans, not just help a few at the expense of the many. Help put American values back at the heart of our economy by joining the campaign to ReCapture the Flag.

Thanks to a generous donor, every gift EOI receives between now and July 31st will be matched – dollar-for-dollar – up to $10,000! And every contribution will support EOI’s effort to build an economy that works for everyone, by:

  • Rewarding hard work. We’re defending our state’s best-in-the-nation minimum wage and working to protect and expand Social Security – the “people’s pension” – to guarantee everyone a dignified retirement.
  • Building strong families. After spearheading a successful paid sick days ordinance in Seattle, we’re working for paid family and medical leave insurance for every worker in Washington – so we can all fulfill our responsibilities, both at work and at home.
  • Doing your fair share. We’re organizing a movement to make Washington’s taxes more equitable and stable, laying the foundation for a better quality of life for everyone.

Please help ReCapture the Flag by making your gift today!
