Multi-faith group in Toronto to hold basic income events in late October

Roderick Benns

The multi-faith group in Toronto that held a basic income symposium last fall is launching another event in late October.

The Case for Solidarity: A Panel Discussion, will be held at University of St. Michael’s College on the evening of October 19, with panelists Senator Art Eggleton, Chandra Pasma, and Katherine Bullock. The moderator is Dr. Evelyn Forget.

Last year’s Basic Income symposium, which was hosted in collaboration with the Christian-Jewish Dialogue, had strong interfaith support from across the city.

Organizational partners of the event were the Christian Jewish Dialogue of Toronto, University of St. Michael’s College, and Massey College, with funding from many different faith communities.

This fall’s session will include sessions on work, wealth and redistribution, poverty and economics, social justice and basic income, and cultivating concern for the common good, among other topics.
