Bring down the killer flag... of poverty

One way to address the legacy of slavery and racism that creates racial wealth disparity would be to acknowledge the worth of every human being by creating a basic income guarantee.

Background: Remapping Debate: Guaranteed Income's Moment in the Sun

Sign this petition to Congress and the President:

Create a basic income guarantee for every American.
