Join Arwen Tag For A Conversation About Mutual Aid: What is it and How to get Involved
Come join an informal conversation and participate in a shared brainstorm on ways to get involved with mutual aid in the Twin Cities. We will explore how mutual aid works, what groups and organizations are leading mutual aid efforts, and how to manage your own monetary giving as a young professional working in the nonprofit sector.
Mutual aid has long existed as a way for people to help each other manage and survive through community solidarity. And during the pandemic, mutual aid has increased to provide direct assistance to individuals and communities in need. Whether that's food, clothing, shelter, money to pay rent or medical bills, or even something as simple as hanging out virtually, mutual aid is more than just giving money.
As mutual aid efforts increase, and social media makes it easier than ever to get involved, let's gather to share what we know collectively, and create a brainstorm of recommendations for ourselves and others to reference in the coming months. Bring your recommendations, or come listen and learn. This event is for all.
