United StatesMaking Money Make Change (MMMC) is Resource Generation’s annual 100-person gathering for young people with wealth (ages 18-35) who believe in social change. This four day conference aims to generate visions of a future in which land, wealth and power are equitably distributed. MMMC is a confidential space that uses workshops, storytelling and skill building to create a space for young people with class privilege and wealth to explore questions of identity and responsibility in a supportive environment. MMMC programming is dynamic and specific to young people with wealth who are interested in social justice. If you are just starting to think about identity and social change MMMC is a great space for you! It’s also a great conference to attend if you have been grappling with these issues for some time, and want to do that work in community. We’ll explore a range of topics from creating a giving plan for distributing resources to the dynamics of being in cross-class relationships and communities.
Throughout the conference, participants will support, challenge, and inspire each other to align their resources with their values and work for personal and societal transformation. The days are full of interactive workshops, plenaries, identity caucuses, open spaces, and intimate pod groups.*
MMMC is always a cross-class space. While participants are young people with wealth and partners of young people with wealth, movement leaders, Resource Generation staff and other presenters from various class backgrounds are present and vital parts of MMMC. As such, it’s a great opportunity to be practicing healthy cross class dynamics and to lovingly self reflect on how class privilege manifests.
Through our local chapters, Resource Generation provides a year-round community with which to organize around ongoing learning, collective giving projects, and issue-based campaigns. MMMC is an excellent access point to our work.
We are so excited to see you November! Registration will open in August. If you’d like to be added to Resource Generations mailing list to get announcements about Making Money Make Change or have questions send an email to RG’s Retreat Organizer, Jes Kelley at firstname.lastname@example.org
