Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott is joining other mayors across the country to create a guaranteed income pilot program. The group, Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, includes mayors who are advocating for direct, recurring cash payments to citizens. “Baltimore is the birthplace of redlining and residential segregation. That legacy shows up in the stark inequalities of our city today, which have been exacerbated by this pandemic. To ensure the economic security and dignity of our residents, we must be willing to invest in bold solutions,” said Mayor Brandon M. Scott.
