Vielmetter Los Angeles continues our year-long donation pledge supporting effective change to dismantle police brutality, white supremacy, racism, and injustice. This month we are donating $1,000 to The Compton Pledge.
"The Compton Pledge is a landmark guaranteed income initiative that will distribute recurring cash relief to low-income residents for 2 years, marking the largest city-based guaranteed income pilot in the U.S. The idea of guaranteed income (GI) is simple but powerful: unconditional, direct, and continuous cash payments delivered to all residents to supplement existing welfare benefits. By ensuring that no individual falls below a defined income floor over time, GI creates a true safety net. It enables families to weather crises and government actors and philanthropists to invest directly in the path towards economic justice and reparations."
We will announce the next organization we are supporting on February 15th.
