New Year's Greetings

The RIAS wishes you a happy and healthy 2019.

The new year will offer plenty of opportunities to contemplate the evolution of the United States, and its place in the world, over the course of the "Rooseveltian Century": it will mark a 100 years since the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, 50 since the moon landing, and 30 since the fall of the Berlin Wall. For the RIAS, it will also be a year in which several of our activities will be structured around the theme of  "Freedom from Want," perhaps the most far-reaching and ambitious of the "Four Freedoms" propagated by FDR in January 1941.

To keep up with RIAS activities, watch our website, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. You can also subscribe to our mailing list by sending an email to
