Join the SRC as we screen a documentary called "The Revolution Generation" (RG). We'll be providing light refreshments! Visit our new home in the RISE Suite, G458 Student Center.

RG is an exploration of the world-changing activism and potential of the largest youth generation in history. It shows examples of young leaders working to revolutionize systems that have failed their generation, and it paints a powerful and hopeful picture of how today's youth can solve global political and environmental crises.

Narrated and featuring Award-Winning Actor Michelle Rodriguez (Lost, Avatar, The Fast and The Furious), RG is a manifesto for today's youth on the societal forces that have both shaped and held back their generation. The film gives a roadmap for how today's youth can revolutionize the political, social and economic systems that have exploited and failed them.

This upbeat documentary explores "an alternate history" of the sweeping changes that lead to the world that young people are inheriting and paints a powerful, hopeful, and actionable picture of how today's youth can solve the global climate crisis.

As the millennial and youth vote slides backwards in the United States from over 50% in 2016 to 46% in 2020, the movie ends with a call to action for young people to get involved in policy including running for office, revolutionizing outdated parts of our democracy and most importantly, voting.
