Cordelia Holst - Universal Basic Income
Universal Basic Income-a Radical, Yet Inicreasingly Popular Solution to Many of our Biggest Problems

Cordelia Holst went to Apple Blossom, Twin Hills, and Analy High School in Sebastopol, and earned a BS degree in Business and Marketing from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  She lived and worked 13 years in Norway before she moved back with her family to Sebastopol in 2016. Cordelia´s career has been in marketing, founding and running her own pie shops, and recently started as Executive Director of the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center. 

Seeing the vast inequalities in American society, put in stark perspective after over a decade in Norway, she became interested in the Universal Basic Income (UBI) movement that is growing in both size and attention these days. She has attended conferences at the Basic Income Lab at Stanford University in the Ethics department, attended a weekend long create-a-thon and the CASH conference sponsored by the Economic Security Project. She has contributed to the movement by working as a freelance journalist for BIEN, the Basic Income Earth Network. Cordelia believes a UBI could be a solution for economic insecurities facing Americans today.
