About the Patriotic Millionaires

Founded in 2010, the Patriotic Millionaires is a group of high net worth Americans who share a profound concern about the destabilizing concentration of wealth and power in the country. The organization’s work centers on advancing three core values in the public debate: higher
taxes on the wealthy, a livable minimum wage, and equal political representation for all citizens.

About Resource Generation

Resource Generation is a multiracial membership community of young people (18-35) with wealth and/or class privilege committed to the equitable distribution of wealth, land and power.

As young people with wealth and class privilege who have benefited from an unjust and corrupt tax system, we have a responsibility to fight for a fair system that protects our communities, not our wealth. The U.S.’s current tax system — its absurd tax cuts, loopholes, and subsidies to benefit wealthy people and corporations — is designed to keep wealth concentrated in the hands of a few. But most wealth and corporate profits are extracted, usually violently, from natural resources and the labor of the multiracial working class. In fact, we simply can’t talk about wealth in this country without addressing how the U.S. economy is built on slavery, genocide of Native Americans, and environmental destruction. A fair tax system is essential to distributing wealth equitably by investing in communities and our environment. But in the richest country in the world, a fair tax system is, at the very least, a moral obligation.
