Do the Work: Guaranteed Basic Income
Thursday, August 25, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Registration is now closed. Please contact Aline Racic, [email protected], for any questions.
When you think about the solution to poverty do you wonder about people’s ability to pay for their basic needs and what would happen if rent and food were not a struggle? Then this session is for you. We’ll spend time with the Black Women’s Resilience Project and other partners who are testing in San Diego a proven model that provides regular income supplements to families that allow them to focus on school, work, and wealth-building activities that allow them to define a new future that is not constrained by systemic issues like redlining and implicit biases that prevent women and people of color from gaining employment. We will look at how to combine public and private dollars for a successful pilot and continuation of sustainable programs.
Transportation and lunch is provided. Participants will be picked up and dropped off at the Catalyst office.
