MUTUAL AID NETWORKS AND CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE

This is especially during the coronavirus epidemic,

but check with these efforts/organizations on a consistent basis.

Collective care is eternally relevant, people are central! That is mutual aid.

It is born from community efforts and acknowledgement

that the system cannot save us as it exists.

And we are the existent change who keep each other alive.
