Faith organising

Malcolm Torry has a new book coming out called Basic Income: A Christian social policy. In Birmingham we are planning to host a launch meeting for his book. We will invite all the Christians and other interested people of faith (or no faith) that we know. We will choose a prominent faith venue to hold it in. This will help to move the discussion into new circles who are already concerned about poverty but usually focus on charity as a solution. The same approach could be taken with other faiths, all of which could in theory claim an interest - eg. Buddhists for its compassionate reduction of suffering, Sikhs for the universality of the policy.

    Dear Becca,
    I am a Director of a new organisation called World Basic Income – we will be campaigning for the introduction of a worldwide, globally-funded basic income for people everywhere, to complement national government-run basic income schemes. See worldbasicincome.org.uk for details. We’d be very happy to come and speak at an event like this to help give a global context if you would like? The faith community have taken a lead role in promoting basic income in many places, Namibia especially, and we hope this partnership will develop even further.

    Best wishes,
    Laura Bannister
    Director – World Basic Income
