Mutual aid is the idea that in our communities, we can care for each other.
In the richest country in the world, we have enough for all.
Right now, many of our neighbors are struggling to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. These are, for the most part, the same people hit hardest by the pandemic.
Many people of color, immigrants, women, and low wage workers in our community won’t see a penny of federal relief money. But together, we can fill in the gaps left by slow or incomplete government assistance.
If you’ve already received your stimulus check, or know you’ve got one on the way, consider joining the movement to #ShareMyCheck.
TakeAction Minnesota organizers compiled this list of grassroots organizing efforts, funds, and organizations working to fill in the gaps in federal relief efforts at this moment. Some of them work with a certain group or in a certain geographic location. Some are national groups. Most are based right here in Minnesota. All of them can use your support.
