We know what’s at stake in 2020—the future of our planet and our democracy, human dignity and decency, possibility or persecution. The public health emergency of COVID-19 lays bare how desperately we need to remove Trump from office. The presidential election is a battleground not only for the highest office in the land, but for climate justice, college access, healthcare, housing, immigrant and trans rights, and so much more. It is about protecting the hard fought wins of the generations before us, and being able to imagine a future we demand and deserve. It’s about defining our terrain of struggle for all that we know we need to fight for.
Generation Rising is a national vehicle for young people of color to work with social justice movements and community-based efforts in swing states to defeat Trump and build systemic change for the long-haul.
Volunteers and Fellows will support campaigns led by working class communities and communities of color doing presidential election work through phone-banking, texting, and relational organizing.
Generation Rising provides training and opportunities to impact elections in key swing states while building connections and knowledge for long term social justice organizing.
