TWT_017 ubi pilots

The Labour Party needs votes, but voters need a Labour Party committed to making good on its foundational commitments. Articulating a vision to address the crises of poverty, inequality, and climate change is in Labour’s interest. UBI is the multipurpose policy instrument capable of delivering part of that vision: a socially secure Britain free from avoidable anxiety.

Join Autonomy and the Basic Income Conversation for a snapshot into the contemporary universal basic income movement. We’ll be hosting a conversation with Labour politicians, campaigners, and communities designing basic income demonstrations. We need a Universal Basic Income now - join the conversation here.
