Berkeley Campus Reacts to War in Israel/Universal Basic Income /The Moth's Corey Rosen

Universal Basic Income

Universal Basic Income

We’ll hear how two UC Berkeley professors with very different views on the Israel-Hamas war joined together to send a message condemning violence and advocating civil disagreement.

Then, what would you do with an extra $500 - $1,000 a month? 725 families in the Bay area received just that. Two generous, privately funded pilot programs in the Bay Area: Oakland Resilient Families and MOMentum in Marin spent the last 2 years running and studying Universal Basic Income here in the bay. We’ll learn what they discovered.

Plus, we'll talk with Corey Rosen, host of the Moth story slam about the art of story telling and how to tell your story at the Moth.
