Activists from across the spectrum of Universal Basic Income in New York to talk about the upcoming Basic Income March, Diane Pagen of Basic Income Action Basic Income Action is an organization with chapters across the United States. Our mission is to win a basic income for all by educating and organizing people to take action. We envision a world where basic economic security is guaranteed, and everyone has enough money to live with dignity. We envision a society that is truly committed to the American ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness — with a government that provides everyone with the basic income we need to ensure these rights. We aim to extend and advance the successful efforts of the U.S. Basic Income Guarantee Network, USBIG, which was founded in December 1999. We also work closely with the Basic Income Earth Network, BIEN. David Andersson From the NY Office of Pressenza Pressenza is a space open to the expression of the social base. We endorse a universalist humanist perspective and actively promote cooperation agreements and partnerships with other agencies, as well as reciprocal links with portals, platforms, news and communications media of specific communities and cultures. Pressenza is part of an extensive network of new media that achieves global reach for local proposals while they are supplied information with the material provided by the agency. Pressenza consists of volunteers with extensive experience in communication, social activism, cultural and academic fields. The agency is independent from any economic interest, the basic condition for its autonomy. We are columnists, reporters, photographers, graphic designers, videographers and translators on five continents who contribute our professional work without financial compensation. Maria Teresa of Urban Justice Center's The Safety Net Project advocates for safe and secure housing and fundamental resources like food and cash assistance for underserved and marginalized communities in New York City. We combine legal services, policy advocacy, new media campaigns, and community organizing to advance the movement for economic justice. --- Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
