In this unsure time of a new pandemic, and individuals struggling to respond to the public health crisis of COVID-19, we now more than ever must love and protect each other. In the city of Los Angeles, we need to come together as one community and do everything we can on the ground to supplement, support and reduce risk to every community member and community in this city. Especially since there is a glaring absence of federal, state or city governments enacting the sweeping structural changes and safety nets that we critically need.
We are creating a COVID19 LA Mutual Aid Community Network, comprised of different grassroots organizations, movements and organizers, who are committed to organizing material support in the community. We are immediately providing grocery and supply deliveries, and are preparing to expand this to other community support services like running errands, dog walking, childcare, caregiving, and mental health support for those impacted by the pandemic.
If you are reading this, we implore you to donate today, sign up to volunteer, or sign up to receive assistance: Mutual Aid LA . We have an incredible opportunity to crack open our culture of silence and offer our community love, support, and aid.
The most freeing and radically kind thing we can do right now, to fight the system and protest the lack of care for all those struggling, is to come together and support each other.
This is a community network of solidarity. We hope it will grow in terms of groups and individuals joining the network, as well as broadening the support from delivery supply and in-home services to the growing network coming together to protect workers, demand paid time off, quarantine pay, eviction moratoriums, and other human rights that will need to be met in this crisis. We have a lot of communities in our city who are extremely vulnerable-- the undocumented, disabled, elderly, houseless, housing insecure, sex workers, healthcare workers, and more. We also know that in our current housing crisis, homelessness crisis, and at the larger intersection of class struggle, systemic poverty affects every single community and will be compounded by this pandemic.
We need your support more than ever.
