MUTUAL AID PHX

(WHAT IS MUTUAL AID?)
 

at its core, mutual aid is solidarity, not charity. we are now involved in the creation of a more survivable system, where we take the responsibility of caring for one another, outside of the statist capitalist system that relies on individualism and enforces structural inequality.

a synthesis of collectivism (prioritizing community over the individual) and individualism (an individual’s freedom of action beyond state control), mutual aid is a voluntary exchange between individuals, with the goal of redistributing resources within community, knowing there is enough for everyone.

ABOUT US: 
safety starts with strong communities

We are an all-volunteer grassroots group operating in Phoenix, AZ.
 

We are prioritizing folks who are sick, disabled, quarantined without pay, elderly, undocumented, queer, Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color -- including those displaced from Phoenix to the nearby areas.

We know that there are enough material resources for everybody in the community. We redistribute resources through our weekly community resource exchange, the delivery of essential supplies, maintenance of drop off sites, and creating connections to various resources and community-led organizations.
