The Usefulness of Mutual Aid

In the midst of a global pandemic, some may be hesitant to engage in mutual aid in person. 

One of the most helpful ways you can support and be involved is directly donating and providing supplies to mutual aid organizations to ensure they keep running. 

But if you are willing to participate in person, it will take some researching to do so. There is no central place to find mutual aid networks, therefore you have to find them yourselves. 

This means looking into local news, googling about mutual aid efforts in your area and following mutual aid networks on social media. 

In various cities across the country, it is possible to find sites dedicated to highlighting mutual aid efforts and their services. 

You may even be interested in starting your own mutual aid network for your community if you can’t find the services right for you.
