By Victor Trammell – Compton, California’s young, trailblazing, black, and female mayor has revealed her city’s ambitious, new economic relief plan, which seeks to provide monthly payments for nearly 1,000 of Compton’s poorest residents.
According to CNN, Compton mayor Aja Brown (pictured) released an official statement on Monday (Oct. 20) that touched base on the tenets of the forthcoming Compton Pledge. Mayor Brown’s economic relief package will provide monthly payments to the city’s most vulnerable residents who have suffered through America’s 2020 health and economic crisis.
Brown’s Compton Pledge program seeks to “challenge the racial and economic injustice plaguing both welfare programs and economic systems,” the mayor said in her statement. Her program is definitely what one could call a good start. It is certainly much better than the zero that other U.S. cities have provided for their most vulnerable residents.
“Under the [two-year pilot] program, to be launched in late 2020, a pre-verified group of  low-income Comptonians will be notified of their selection and begin receiving cash transfers shortly thereafter. Recipients will be able to choose between multiple payment options to best suit their needs,” Brown’s statement reads.
