SIGN THE 2023 ANNUAL REDISTRIBUTION PLEDGE
We are living in the most extreme wealth inequality in modern history. As young people, this stops with our generation.
Why sign the Redistribution Pledge every year?
It makes an accountable commitment to redistributing a specific amount of money to social justice movements over a set period of time.
Your individual giving will build collective power!
Resource Generation is working toward a vision in which wealth, land, and power are equitably shared. Achieving this vision requires more than just individual action – it requires systemic cultural, policy, and institutional shifts, as well as reparations and a radical reimagining of society. We believe that well-resourced grassroots social movements led by Black, Indigenous and People of Color, poor and working-class communities, women, and queer and trans people are our best hope for achieving this vision, and so we ask our members to commit to sustaining social justice movements that are working towards systemic shifts.
As part of a coordinated strategy to return individual wealth and repair the harm created by wealth extraction, RG asks members to take bold action with the resources currently under our and our families’ control, and move toward greater alignment with humanity and the planet. To find out more, read our Redistribution Guidelines.
RG has an annual goal of moving $100M to social justice movements. That’s $1 billion over the next decade. We only meet that goal if ALL our members redistribute boldly and fill out the Redistribution Pledge, every year.
Giving $100M represents about 7% of the total assets to which this community has access – the “say no to making wealth off of wealth” level of our Redistribution Guidelines. To be clear, this is only a starting point; to actually begin redistributing, the RG community will need collectively to be giving over 7% of total assets annually. For this reason, we encourage people to pledge at least 7% of your assets or higher, and to make it a multi-year commitment.
Your info will be kept securely, and we’ll use it to follow up and support you to complete your pledge.

Note regarding interpersonal giving and the Redistribution Pledge:
We understand that mutual aid is a critical part of liberation work, and we welcome people to track giving to individuals in their Redistribution Pledge. Giving to individuals and giving to power-building organizations are two intertwined strategies that are both necessary for bringing about the world we want and need. Check out our Interpersonal Giving Guide. We also encourage you to check out our evolving thinking on the differences between reparations and redistribution, informed by our national campaign partner the Movement for Black Lives.
