A people powered movement to ensure nobody is left behind. #WeOweUs
Our economy is leaving millions behind. Basic Income March is a people powered movement to send the message that our society and economy needs to evolve to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
The Basic Income March will begin in South Bronx at Hostos College and finish in Harlem, at the Convent Baptist Church. We will march with and hear from leaders including Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang, Congressional Candidate James Felton Keith, and Hawk Newsome, Chairman of Black Lives Matter.
Get involved. Get inspired. Together, we can make historic change.
Bronx to Harlem. A historic walk for historic change.

For our 2023 Day of Action, we want to lean into education and leverage the powerful tools of culture change we already have in our community! Films have been an amazing resource for movements to start conversations, change hearts and minds, and connect everyday people to a movement and the ideas behind them.Join us to host watch parties around the country! We have worked with filmmakers to develop a best series of conversation guides and activities for the films Storming Caesar's Palace, Inherent Good, and Raising The Floor. We’ll help you get the film, access conversation guides, and more.
Watch the trailers of the three movies (Storming Caesar's Palace, Inherent Good, and Raising The Floor) and decide which would be the most fun and/or the most impactful for your community. Determine the format: in-person or online? Activity or discussion following?
If in person, decide on your venue: your home, a friend’s space, a community space like a cafe, community center or library, or a local theater.
Send out invites! Use social media, email invitations, or event platforms to invite your community. Income Movement has graphics templates if you need support! Send out reminders to guests a week before and a day before the event, along with new details. Build excitement!
Attend organizer meetings if possible to connect to community support and resources such as discussion guides and activities for your film.
Prepare to facilitate a discussion about the film. Think about strategies to set the tone for open, honest dialogue that is respectful. Print out the QR Code and quarter sheets that link to the basic income sign-on letter to congress. Conduct a tech rehearsal if possible.
Have fun! Enjoy the film and the opportunity to connect to your community. Ask people to add their name to the sign-on letter to congress. And ask folks to help recruit more people in their communities.
Don’t forget to take photos so your event can be included in the post-event communications across the basic income community. Post photos to social media with the hashtag: #basicincomeday2023 so people see the power of the Day of Action.
Send a thank you email with a few ways to stay plugged into the movement.
Let us know how it went! What were the highlights and take-aways, how many folks showed up. Send us your photos! Attend the post-event organizer debrief meeting so we know what worked and how we can continue to support you in future events.
Posters, placards, signs, banners. All types, all sizes. Each year we have a unique tagline for the event. This year it's "Cash is Freedom". And as always, "We Are the Economy" is the annual event's key message. Access a variety of materials following the link below.
Income Movement is a leader in the movement for a federal basic income. And like many movements for meaningful social change, this is a marathon, not a sprint.
