Welcome to GenR: LA
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 Los Angeles—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 Los Angeles through volunteer opportunities and career mentoring programs with refugee youth.
