In accordance with our values, Movement Generation is committed to rejecting extractive labor practices, and instead creating a transformative workplace where our labor and contributions are honored and our needs are met. We do this by providing a thriving wage and a robust benefits package. We are also committed to regularly reviewing, sharing, and discussing our compensation package both within our organization and across our networks in order to better understand and meet the needs of the individuals we employ.

These practices have been informed and inspired by many of our movement partners. This statement of transparency was specifically informed by our comrades at the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy.
