Despite the region’s immense wealth, Bay Area residents still struggle with homelessness, access to food, poverty, and high recidivism rates. As we strive to better meet the needs of our entire community, more and more people are talking about Universal Basic Income as a means of supporting all members of society.
This panel will feature experts from a variety of different social service sectors to discuss how Basic Income could affect the communities they work with, what factors are most important to consider about the program, and how it would compare to alternative models of assistance.
