GenR—short for Generation Rescue—is a group of young, influential humanitarians who have joined forces with the International Rescue Committee to help people survive conflict and disaster and rebuild their lives. Inspired, informed and influential, GenR members in DC Metro—and across the country—engage their communities in support of the IRC through a range of advocacy, educational, networking and fundraising activities.
They are also given the opportunity to directly support refugees resettled in DC Metro through volunteer opportunities and career mentoring programs with refugee youth.
GenR: DC Metro’s official Launch Party will take place in early 2018. However, we are busy right now recruiting GenR members to help get our newest chapter off the ground.
Through monthly events, members are working together to foster a community that spreads across all GenR chapters. To learn more about how you can get involved in GenR: DC Metro, email us at GenR.DCMetro [at] rescue.org.
