Come learn about, and perhaps join, the emerging movement to provide income security for all. Martin Luther King Jr. called for guaranteed income throughout the last year of his life, and the idea was endorsed by leading economists and politicians, and nearly enacted. There were mass movements for income security and economic justice in the 1890s and 1930s, and earlier supporters included Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and Abraham Lincoln. With current economic conditions, income security for all is now an imperative. This is a rapid, reliable, responsible way to end the recession.
