DisCakes, New York Indigenous Kinship Collective, Woodbine Food Pantry
→ → WHAT'S GOING ON? ← ←
Tonight we'll be talking with party organizers Discakes, New York's Indigenous Kinship Collective and the Woodbine Food Pantry about what mutual aid is (and isn't), why it's become a popular response to the fallout of coronavirus, and how people can get involved in mutual aid groups or even start their own. The panel will be moderated by Nowdays' own, Zoë Beery.
