On September 19, 2020 basic income supporters in more than 45 cities across the globe came together to demonstrate their support for basic income in what was the largest ever demonstration of support for basic income. 2020 was the first year that Income Movement hosted a series of events in the week leading up to the March to show the growth of the movement in the United States and beyond, a tradition that continues for all future Marches. To accommodate COVID and ensure safe social distancing, a wide variety of event types and toolkits were included to support organizers in their planning.
In October 2019, the first ever Basic Income March was organized, in 30 cities around the globe. It was an opportunity for people long in the fight for basic income to take their passion and dedication to the streets for the first time. And an opportunity to those newly turned on to the idea via Andrew Yang's campaign to join in the fight for a new vision of the economy. New York, San Francisco, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Seoul Korea were among the cities with massive turnouts.
