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

A basic income guarantee -- advocated by individuals ranging from Thomas Paine and Martin Luther King Jr. to President Richard Nixon -- could eliminate poverty, reduce bureaucracy, reduce inequality, and reduce crime and desperation.

Sign this petition to Congress and the President:

Create a basic income guarantee for every American.
