About 

THE MOVEMENT

Income Movement is working to move universal basic income from a radical idea to widespread public acceptance and organize a grassroots movement to elect representatives who will enact basic income legislation in the next decade.

We believe that the economy is broken. Currently, many of the people who work hardest and are the backbones of a strong economy are those who are most vulnerable to financial hardship and insecurity. It is time to shift our thinking and recognize that we can design a system that works for everyone.

Our

MISSION

The energy surrounding basic income and economic solutions for a healthy 21st Century America is stronger than ever. Income Movement started with a worldwide march for basic income spanning 30 cities, in 13 countries, on six continents. 10,000 people showed up to demand change. This is just the beginning

Our country is at the precipice of massive upheaval. 43 million Americans live in poverty. 37% of American adults currently don’t work. 73 million American jobs will be automated within 10 years. In the land of ‘equal opportunity’ none of our solutions have leveled the playing field.

The solution is to give cash to as many people as possible and empower them to do what makes most sense to their needs. No one deserves to start at zero. An equal head start means better outcomes for all.

Income Movement is made up of former tech entrepreneurs, retail workers, students, social workers, union members, artists, and political operatives. We are former Yang 2020 staffers, donors, Yang Gang volunteers, and long-term Basic Income advocates. We are proud members of our communities. And we are everyone who joins us - that’s you!
