Policy Issue Briefing: Economic Security - Universal Basic Income

Friday, November 17, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm CST
MCF, 800 Washington Ave N #703, Minneapolis, MN 55401

Description: The reality of the new Congress will become more apparent in 2018 where we expect to see dramatic budget cuts. It is expected that cuts will be deep, beyond trimming bureacratic excess. As budget discussions continue, advocates will be working hard to defend and protect existing safety net programs. All of us will also be challenged to think differently about our economic safety net and how to meet the everyone's needs. These difficult budget conversations provide us with an opportunity to explore new and alternative pathways for achieving economic security, such as the idea of universal basic income. 

We're excited to welcome Natalie Foster, co-chair of The Economic Security Project, to join us for a briefing on universal basic income and the pathway to achieving economic security for all.
