San Francisco Mint | 5th St., San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
The Economic Security Project invites you to their first ever CASH Conference this fall in San Francisco. You will meet at the historic Old Mint, a building that once housed a third of the nation’s wealth, to reimagine what an economy built on the well-being of everyone could look like.
Come hear former SEIU president Andy Stern on the future of work, State Representative Chris Lee on how to move politics forward, and Elizabeth Rhodes from Y-Combinator with an update on their basic income pilot in Oakland.
You’ll talk to experts about the evidence for unconditional cash, examine why a basic income may be our best shot at alleviating poverty, surface the history of a guaranteed income in the fight for civil rights, and look at the kind of societal shifts automation could bring. They are bringing together artists, academics, activists and curious newcomers for a day of challenging conversations as you forge ahead towards a more secure future, and they want you there.
Can’t get the day off of work for the conference? Join them after 6:00 pm for an evening of cocktails in the vaults, storytelling from Pendarvis Harshaw and art activations from the Museum of Capitalism. Free but an RSVP is required.
