Do you want to organize a community event to discuss BASIC INCOME as a way to end poverty and ensure economic security for all?
The Ontario Basic Income Network can help you to organize such an event!
A film entitled The Manitoba Story is available to you at no cost, and could be the focus of a meeting in your community. The film describes a basic income experiment called “Mincome” that took place in Dauphin, MB in the 1970s.
Mincome changed the lives of participants in very significant ways. These changes have been documented in research by Dr. Evelyn Forget and others.
In The Manitoba Story, Dauphin residents tell their own stories in personal and powerful ways. The film is 20 minutes in length, and can be used with tools to animate discussion as part of a “BIG Experience.”
Get in touch with us at OBIN if you are interested in telling “The Manitoba Story” in your community, OR would like to organize a similar community event featuring speakers and audio-visual resources.
