Eleanor Roosevelt House
Eleanor Roosevelt – Advocate
An Advocate is one who notices the suffering of those who cannot help themselves, then uses her power and her voice to create positive change. Eleanor Roosevelt transformed the office of the First Lady from a figurehead into a legitimate position of power. She focused her efforts primarily on women, children, minorities, and other members of society who needed someone to fight for them, someone to act as their voice. Eleanor Roosevelt’s advocacy for those less fortunate than herself has left a legacy of love and compassion to which we all should aspire.
