Last year, we experienced a global pandemic that continues to ravage society. The narrative during the pandemic has been "We're all in this together." Unfortunately, we know this isn't true — while ordinary families struggle to pay for their essential needs, the richest have come to control more wealth than ever. Billionaires are flying to space while their employees lack basic benefits or a livable wage. The past year has made our economic inequality and vulnerability abundantly clear: we need to shift our thinking and recognize that we can design a system that works for everyone.
Join us on September 25th, 2021 as we take to the streets for the 3rd Annual Basic Income March to demand our leadership pass a federal basic income as a means to a healthier, more innovative, and more just society. We must create an income floor upon which each member of our society can grow and thrive, and in turn ensure our local and national economies can be financially stable. We are the economy, so recovery must start with 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.
