Birmingham Mutual Aid

 

Be the first to review

While there are people in need always and everywhere that have been underserved, we are at the beginning of something that most of us have never seen before. Mutual Aid, quite simply, is the practice of caring for each other. Just as you would pick up your friend when their car broke down, cook a meal for your family, or run to the store for a friend when they’re sick and need cold medicine, it’s solidarity not charity.

What we’re working on is a one to one or one to many mutual aid group but we know that many other people and organizations have already been doing this care work or are creating programs and lists of useful information.

Mutual Aid, quite simply, is the practice of caring for one another. Just as you would pick up your friend when their car broke down, cook a meal for your family, or run to the store for a friend when they’re sick and need cold medicine, by participating you are creating community, building relationships, learning to care for and be cared for. It is an important reminder that we are not alone. We all have something to offer and we all have something we need.
