UBI Action Network is a 501(c)(4) non-profit social welfare organization. Donations are not tax deductible. We are dedicated to passing legislation to make Universal Basic Income (UBI) available to every American. In fulfilling our vision, we are committed to building the broadest and most diverse coalition of allies possible and to educating the public and policymakers about how UBI strengthens our families, our economy, and our country.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We are committed to a UBI movement where diverse voices have a seat at the table. We listen, we invite debate, we value different perspectives, and we celebrate how our various experiences better inform the work we do. We believe that, in order to succeed, we need a multi-racial, multi-generational movement that looks like America.
ACCOUNTABILITY & TRANSPARENCY
As a new organization, we understand that trust is earned. We are committed to operating in a way that conforms to best practices in non-profit management. And, we pledge to work with non-profit rating organizations to ensure that we are complying with the highest professional standards.
