Food, Clothing & Resistance Collective (FCRC) is a Radical Anarchist Black Womxn created Mutual Aid/Direct Action Collective. We center Black, Brown, Indigenous, Womxnist, & Queer resistance supporting anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, anti-authoritarian, anti-poverty, anti-heteropatriarchal, anti-racist, anti-ableist, people’s independence & liberation movements. We support non-heirarchal, anti-state, prison abolitionist, self-defense, earth defense, community defense, autonomous cooperatives, communes, grassroots collectives & intentional communities. We fight for local, regional, national and international dual power as we work together for the ultimate goal of the self-determination and liberation of all oppressed peoples and lands from white supremacist-patriarchal-capitalist-imperialist and neocolonialist rule.
Food, Clothing & Resistance Collective was launched in 2015 by Afro-Indigenous Anarchist organizer and artist Sima Lee to connect other organizers and community together for volunteer mutual aid, survival programs, direct actions, self-defense, resistance planning, revolutionary music & art projects, free classes & meetings. We have served and fed hundreds of people over the years with various programs such as DC Free Store, Feed The People, People’s Pantry, People’s Garden & Water Relief .
We are also the founders of Maroon House/Maroon Movement which was established as an intentional and collective house and movement created by Black Queer Womxn and Femmes. We have participated in protests, lectures, hosted music concerts, films, conferences, art showcases, workshops & meetings while staying constantly active in the struggle for autonomy.
Our year round mutual aid (survival programs) can always use donations of more: deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, tampons, or sanitary napkins sleeping bags, blankets, clothing and shoes. Food items we need the most are: bottled water, fresh fruits/ vegetables, bread, peanut butter, jelly, healthy snacks such as granola bars, bags of rice, beans, pasta & ready to eat canned/boxed goods.
We are also always looking to connect with new partners and volunteers especially now that we are currently working to help re-launch the Baltimore Free Store.
We are available to collaborate on projects and events as well as available for lectures, performances and media.
