Today, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey introduced legislation in Congress to create a Green New Deal in the United States. While the resolution states that we must provide economic security to all people in the United States, it stops short of saying that the way to do this is through basic income.1
Basic income was included in the original proposal for a Select Committee for a Green New Deal introduced by Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, so we know it’s on her radar.2 It’s critical that Ocasio-Cortez and Markey hear from people across the country that basic income is the only way to truly guarantee universal economic security.
Send a Twitter message to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Markey using the tool on the right, letting them know why the Green New Deal must include basic income.
