Guaranteed Basic Income: A Powerful Health Intervention (WPSR Virtual Event)

June 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Guaranteed Basic Income: A Powerful Health Intervention - June 30th, 6:00-7:30 pmPlease join WPSR on Thursday, June 30th at 6:00 pm PDT for a special virtual event exploring the health and economic benefits of a targeted Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) program in Washington! Everyone deserves economic security and pilot studies have shown GBI programs to be highly effective in increasing financial stability and improving health for low-income communities.


We are thrilled to be joined by Congressional Representative Pramila Jayapal for opening remarks and a fantastic panel of community leaders, including:

  • A community member with experience participating in a GBI program
  • Lori Pfingst, Senior Director at Washington State Department of Social & Health Services
  • Shaun Scott, Policy & Field Campaign Manager at Poverty Action Network
  • WA State Representative Liz Berry, Representative of the 36th district and prime sponsor of HB 2009 (a bill that would create a statewide GBI program)

We hope to see you there!
