IT IS TIME FOR A GURANTEED MONTLY INCOME FOR SACRAMENTO:
HOMELESS PREVENTION STRATEGY
The Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration [SEED], was launched in February 2019 by former Mayor Michael Tubbs, and founder of Mayors for A Guaranteed Income.
SEED randomly selected 125 residents to receive $500/month for 24 months. The cash was completely unconditional, with no strings attached including no work requirements. SEED's preliminary findings show how just $500/month can proivde the dignity and agency that everyone deserves.
guaranteed income reduced income volatility, or the month-to-month income fluctuations that households face;
recipients were healthier, showing less depression and anxiety and enhanced well being
unconditional cash allowed recipients to find full-time employment
guaranteed income alleviated financial scarcity creating new opportunities for self-determination, choice, goal-setting and risk-taking
Based on the positive experience of Stockton, there are now 6 cities with guaranteed income pilot projects. These include Compton, CA; St. Paul, MN; Richmond, VA; Oakland, CA; Pittsburg, PA; and Patterson, NJ.
Additionally, over 25 cities are considering a pilot project, including Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA and Newark, NJ
Contact Mayor Steinberg and let him know you support a Guaranteed Income for Sacramento and ask him to place on the agenda for City Council ASAP
If you are homeless, please call 211 for help.
