Income Movement

working to move basic income from a radical idea to widespread public acceptance and organize the movement needed to gain a national program in the next decade.

Why Income Movement?

Our experience shows us that creating real change is complex. Movements are built by people and campaigns, social justice coalitions, viral videos, committed volunteers and lawmakers. Income Movement is here to help organize it all.

Organize Together 

We are an inclusive, people-powered movement on a mission to build an economy that works for everyone. Through direct action, educational campaigns, national events, and coalition building with grassroots, non profits, policy experts, elected officials, artists and academics, we design strategic efforts for maximum impact. Join us in this critical work!
