LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--INHERENT GOOD (Director, Steve Borst), a Geist Productions documentary that introduces the popular grassroots policy of Universal Basic Income (UBI) to Southern and Heartland Americans, announces its Global Premiere and Watch Party on September 15, 2020. This event, sponsored by Income Movement, is part of the International Basic Income Week event series which culminates in the worldwide Basic Income March on September 19, 2020 with over 35 cities hosting events on four continents to celebrate the growth of the movement for UBI.
“2020 marks the start of a global, long-term movement for basic income that spans politics, social justice movements, popular culture and more,” announces Stacey Rutland, Founder of Income Movement. “We are excited to present the INHERENT GOOD film premiere during Basic Income Week and celebrate how far we have come.”
