General Mutual Aid Resources

Mutual aid is when people get together to meet each other’s basic survival needs with a shared understanding that the systems we live under are not going to meet our needs and we can do it together RIGHT NOW!

Big Door Brigade, What is Mutual Aid?

Big Door Brigade is a great place to start learning about Mutual Aid, particularly their blog post of COVID-19 Mutual Aid Resources. It includes maps and lists of groups, guides from organizations like Mutual Aid Disaster Relief, and many of the COVID-19 spreadsheets and databases that have sprung up to compile resources. They also have a great video introduction to mutual aid.
