Meet the Participants

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Newark launched the Newark Movement for Economic Equity, one of the nation’s first guaranteed income pilots. One year later, there are now 430 residents receiving guaranteed income in Newark. 


While their stories, backgrounds, and experiences are diverse, they have one thing in common – a belief in the power of guaranteed income to help residents recover financially from pandemic loss, and plan their lives forward.
