Former House speaker Robert DeLeo, who is a Northeastern University Fellow for Public Life, will be honored at the 25th annual Massachusetts Democratic Party Dinner as one of two recipients of this year’s Roosevelt Awards. The annual dinner will take place on Thursday, June 13. Every year, the organization typically honors two people who are “major champions of democratic values and causes.”  

A Roosevelt Award is the “highest honor” the Massachusetts Democratic Party bestows. Prior awardees include former Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey. DeLeo will be honored alongside longtime activist Linda Whitlock, former CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, who now serves in the Biden administration on the President’s Commission on White House Fellows.
