The health, economic, and justice impacts of COVID have been and are most dire for those living at the sharpest intersections of race, class, and gender oppression. While not a panacea, guaranteed income--regular, unconditional, and unrestricted cash transfers to individuals or households--could be a tool for fighting poverty, improving social mobility, and reducing economic inequity*.

A partnership has been formed to address the urgent income needs of community members in our region and support the growing movement for guaranteed income as a policy tool to advance racial justice. The Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, the Consumer Health Foundation (CHF), Restaurant Opportunities Center of DC (ROC-DC), the Greater Washington Community Foundation, Amalgamated Bank, and the Amalgamated Foundation have collaborated to launch a guaranteed income pilot for hospitality workers displaced by COVID.

We invite funders to join this briefing about our guaranteed income pilot on Friday, September 17, 10:00-11:30 a.m. EST. Please register here.
