- BASIC INCOME SIGNS

Basic Income Waterloo Region has lots of Basic Income Now signs ready and waiting to go. If you are in support of a basic income for citizens living below the poverty level, please consider putting up a sign on your front lawn.

To order yours, please contact Bea Henry at 519-635-6581 or by email at: bealynhenry@gmail.com

To increase the impact of the sign even more, take a picture of yourself with the sign. Pictures can then be sent to Craig Berggold at craigberggold@queensu.ca, and he'll post them to the BasicIncomeNow! website and social media.
