Welcome to the GenR (Generation Rescue) community! 

 

We are a dynamic, diverse group of young professionals (under 45) who have joined forces to advance the humanitarian work of the International Rescue Committee (IRC).

 

As a community, we engage others to support the IRC through advocacy, education, networking and fundraising. 

 

GenR is a force for change!
