On Wednesday September 6th, 2017 Vibrant Communities Calgary and Basic Income Calgary invite you to join us for our next Community Conversation, where we’ll be talking about basic income through the lens of food insecurity.

Our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Lynn McIntyre, will discuss a series of policy studies that support a basic income guarantee as a promising solution to food insecurity in Canada.

The keynote address will be followed by a panel discussion with Dr. McIntyre, James McAra, CEO of the Calgary Food Bank and co-chair of the Enough for All Food Dignity Constellation, Mary Salvani, a member of Disability Action Hall and a long-time community advocate, as well as a panelist from the Women's Centre.
