Guaranteed income — direct, unconditional and unrestricted cash assistance to individuals or households — is a policy response to systemic poverty and rising inequality, particularly during a pandemic that has brutally exacerbated these problems. Interest in guaranteed income is surging, with more than 100 pilot programs in development or underway nationally, including nearly a dozen pilots in San Francisco alone. So what does this mean for cities like San Francisco? Join us to discuss the recently released recommendations from the San Francisco Guaranteed Income Advisory Group and to hear practitioners, experts, and Advisory Group members discuss the current landscape and how we move from pilots to policy.
