The economy is broken. Currently, many of the people who work hardest and are the backbones of our economy are those who are most vulnerable to financial hardship and insecurity. The COVID-19 economic crisis has made this abundantly clear. It is time to shift our thinking and recognize that we can design a system that works for everyone.
Join us as we take to the streets to demand our leadership adopt and pass a Federal Universal Basic Income as a means to a healthier, more innovative, and just society. We must create an income floor on top of which each member of our society can grow and thrive, and in turn ensure our local and national economies can thrive. We owe us!
We're on the brink of massive economic upheaval already leaving millions of Americans behind. The system is excluding us.
Universal Basic Income is a means to a healthier, more innovative, and just society. $1,000 per month for every adult in America.
March with us! We owe us.
Our economy is leaving millions behind. Join the people powered movement to send the message that our society and economy needs to evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
