Wealth redistribution is already happening
Through dynamic organizing, praxis groups, political education, chapter events, conferences, local campaigns, and being in community with each other, our work as an organization helps grow our membership of young people with wealth taking action toward the equitable distribution of wealth, land, and power. Since our founding in the 90s, our members have protested in the streets, spoke out at city council meetings, become heads of their family’s foundations, founded donor networks, and moved millions of dollars into revolutionary organizations led by working-class and poor communities and people of color fighting for economic and racial justice.
