The federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic has brought renewed national attention to the idea of a guaranteed income as a potential game-changing approach to tackle the nation’s deep economic inequality.

Building on the promising results of the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration, Mayor Michael Tubbs of Stockton, California, has partnered with the Economic Security project to launch Mayors for a Guaranteed Income. The mayors involved with MGI are advocating for a guaranteed income at the local, state and federal level.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
