Neighborhood groups have popped up all over Los Angeles and in the Bay Area to gather and redistribute groceries and supplies to elderly and at-risk people who can’t leave their homes.
A New York City mutual aid fund has already raised almost $35,000 specifically to redistribute to Black folks in need. And that’s not all!
There are DOZENS of mutual aid groups that have popped up around the country to support folks hit hardest by the pandemic. ItsGoingDown.org is keeping a running list of them on their website. It’s likely there are folks organizing in your area!
