LRT is inspired by the experience of its founder Jerry Ashton who, because of his experience in Occupy Wall Street, co-founded the immensely impactful charity RIP Medical Debt in order to forgive people of unpayable medical debt. Over $3,000,000,000 to date for close to two million people, to be exact. As he put it, “I walked into Occupy Wall Street as a debt collector. I walked out of Occupy Wall Street ad a debt forgiver.”
LRT’s mission is to apply the lessons learned in growing RIP from an obscure two-person charity to a giant in its field to the work of those we discover who also want to experience that thrill.
