What is mutual aid?

Everyone has something to give and something to offer, not just physical resources but time, labor, encouragement, and ideas. Mutual aid is about recognizing that the dominant system is not meeting all of our needs for survival and that we can organize to meet each other’s needs now. Mutual aid cannot pay everyone’s rent (and we recognize that will soon be a universal crisis) but we can take care of each other today and tomorrow in smaller ways.
