At Resource Generation, we organize young people with wealth and class privilege in the U.S. to become transformative leaders working towards the equitable distribution of wealth, land and power. In the coming months and years ahead, social justice organizations across the country will be forced to work beyond capacity to build power and resist the worst of the Trump administration. Our work has never felt more relevant or urgent. Now, more than ever, social justice movements need resources.
With nearly 20 years of experience behind us, hundreds of current members in 15 chapters across the country, and a record increase in interest from young folks with wealth who want to take action, Resource Generation (RG) is in a powerful position to make an impact in this political moment. As a result of getting involved with RG, our members end up giving sixteen times as much money to social justice organizations as they were before they joined.
As part of our Fall Fundraising campaign, we’re challenging our dues-paying members to match their gift to RG with an equal or larger gift to another social justice organization or project — we call this a ‘Movement Match.’
