Mia Birdsong’s work inspires us everyday. From this amazing podcast series with the Nation on why a Guaranteed Income matters, to her current work at Next River: An Institute for Practicing the Future, Mia’s efforts to center human dignity, connectedness, and joy grounds us in the purpose of this work – not just what we hope to achieve, but why it matters.
