We need Basic Annual Income

Nourish Society now supplies meals to nearly 1,000 young children in schools

We need Basic Annual Income

Basic Annual Income is a policy we can’t afford not to implement.

There are so many children growing up in poverty in our valley and so much wealth right alongside. We need a way to get opportunities into the lives of disadvantaged and displaced people. This is such a way.

My family supports Nourish Society which now supplies meals to nearly 1,000 young children in schools in our valley and nearby. School princpals report amazing responses to the food with students learning better getting along better and making better decisions about their lives. Without this opportunity more and more of our children will fail to thrive. There is a huge price to pay if that happens.

Please find the Sept. 19 press release and a summary of key findings here:
