Kevin Dublin is an educator, advocate, and writer of poetry, prose, scripts, and code from Smithfield, NC. He is also a participant in the SF Guaranteed Income Pilot for Artists (SF-GIPA). In his spoken word excerpt from the poem Origin Story, Kevin describes his experience with guaranteed income.

“We have to believe that a guaranteed basic income isn’t radical. It isn’t radical for each citizen to have the financial freedom to fail, to start a business, or create culture. It isn’t radical for each citizen to be able to take care of their families, of their community, and to still feel valued.”
