The tribute runs from 6 to 8 p.m. at Roosevelt House, home of Hunter College’s Public Policy Institute, located at 47-49 East 65th Street in Manhattan.

Roosevelt House was the New York home of President Franklin Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor Roosevelt from 1908 until 1933 when Franklin Roosevelt became President. In 1941, the Roosevelts sold the house to Hunter College.
