Income Movement leads the Annual Basic Income March. They work closely with each city organizer and share well-designed tools and resources to help build events and actions for community engagement each year.
Income Movement is committed to:
- Support costs for the designing and printing of assets for promotions and day-of events.
- Provide necessary supplies for events, as we believe no organizer should have to pay out-of-pocket.
- Aid in the creation of strong local partnerships through social media promotions and targeted emails.
- Leverage its partner relationships, member lists and other resources to support effective local events.
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.

Depending on the status of COVID and social distancing requirements in your area, crowd-based events like a March or Rally may not be possible this year. However, there are lots of types of events that will still allow for public demonstration and provide opportunities to engage your community in a conversation about basic income. Below are some options for your event - or design your own!
If large gatherings with hundreds of people are possible in your region, a standard March or Rally is a great way to bring your community together around an idea.
Find local leaders in the basic income community and invite them to speak at your event. Income Movement will create large banner signs, placards, and other signs and assets to help make for a strong event.
A car or bike parade is the clearest and easiest way to mirror the visual of a march or rally while allowing for social distancing.
Logistics to consider: aerial coverage of the event is likely so sign placement on cars for clear messaging will be important and keeping protesters together with traffic lights can require some strategic planning.
Placing a person (or two+ if they are from the same household) on every corner of a designated high-traffic route can allow for a small number of people to have a large impact.
One of the strengths of this type of event is that people in cars or walking by can read signs over many blocks (or even miles) to experience the message for longer and have basic income sink in.
Experience Walls. “Income Trees”. Pavement Murals. There are a variety of "build it together" art installations that can have a big impact.
These types of events can allow for people to add their own stories about UBI and then have the installation remain for the community to experience long after the event itself.
Posters, placards, signs, banners. All types, all sizes. As the date for the 2021 event approaches, we will make the signs and assets for this year's event available to organizers.
