Long Now Talks

Michael Tubbs

Upsetting the Setup: Creating a California for All

Watch & share these talks on YouTube and Long Now

How do we address society's most pressing issues and create opportunity for those who need it most? Can we create a blueprint for a just and inclusive economy that includes a safety net that centers dignity, quality jobs that empower workers, housing as a human right, wealth creating opportunities for all, and much more? Michael Tubbs is developing that blueprint by creating and implementing policies that address these inequalities, and projects like the Universal Basic Income pilot in the city of Stockton.

Our Q&A Host will be Michael McAfee, president of PolicyLink, a national institute that advances racial and economic equity.
