Defending dignity, unlocking potential.
PPR's Right to Income campaigns challenge systems which drive people into poverty. We challenge both discriminatory laws that ban people from earning an income and consciously cruel social security decisions stripping people of their sole income.
We don't believe anyone should be intentionally left destitute. We don't believe that any person should profit from others' misery. We believe in an economy which serves the people, not the other way around. Everyone should have the means and opportunity to lead a dignified life.
