The battle for 2020: Possible Democratic presidential candidates
Democratic presidential hopeful and Silicon Valley businessman Andrew Yang is bringing his campaign to Columbia.
Yang will be appearing at the Rehoboth Baptist Church on Hardscrabble Road to host a town hall, according to a Facebook event from the campaign.
The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
The town hall will be moderated by Jennifer Clyburn Reed, the director of the Center for Education and Equity of African American Students, according to the event page. Clyburn Reed is the daughter of U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, a Columbia Democrat and House majority whip.
Yang is best known for his proposed policy of universal income, which would provide every adult with $1,000 a month no matter their occupational status. The money would come from a tax on companies that utilize automation, replacing American workers, according to the campaign website.
