Join us in Oakland as people in cities around the world come together in the largest ever
global March for Universal Basic Income on September 19, 2020. Events are also planned in New York, Atlanta, Washington DC, Los Angeles, and worldwide, and will use mixed methods of protesting to have a high impact.

The economy is broken. Currently, many of the people who work hardest and are the backbones of our economy are those who are most vulnerable to financial hardship and insecurity. The COVID-19 economic crisis has made this abundantly clear. It is time to shift
our thinking and recognize that we can design a system that works for everyone.

Join us as we take to the streets to demand our leadership adopt and pass a Universal Basic Income as a means to a healthier, more innovative, and just society. We must create an income floor on top of which each member of our society can grow and thrive, and in turn ensure our local and national economies can thrive. We owe us!
