Our Work

Basic Income America is an advocacy organization pushing for a progressive universal basic income in the United States. We believe this policy is an essential solution to the growing problems of job displacement caused by automation and extreme inequality. We educate the public about these issues by creating online content, hosting events, and organizing awareness actions with teams of volunteers.

Vision

A future with true equality of opportunity, health, and happiness in the United States. We want an America where your worth is not determined by your economic output, but your inherent value as a human being. Basic Income America does not endorse one specific plan for basic income, but rather a range of ideas on the progressive end of the spectrum, which generally feature universal basic income along with universal basic assets such as single payer healthcare.
