2020 saw the popularization of mutual aid into the mainstream. It’s a beautiful way to live in connection – acknowledging our interdependencies and taking care of our neighbors while allowing others to care for us. At the same time, it is a time-consuming, exhausting way to live long-term. Why do we have to do mutual aid? More importantly, which communities have relied on mutual aid for survival long before COVID? Which systems are threatened when we the people facilitate care for ourselves? Who benefits? What might a coordinated, sustainable solution look like? Join us to take a close look at mutual aid and examine how COVID has thrown in some new twists.
