Building the Movement for Mutual Aid

Building the Movement for Mutual Aid

Please note, this is a two-day training. The first portion will be held Friday, March 23, from 7 to 9 p.m.; the second portion, the following day, Saturday, March 24, from 12 to 5 p.m.

Recent events have shown that the effects of climate change are not distant fears, but current realities. From historic flooding in Louisiana to Hurricanes Matthew, Harvey, Irma, and Maria, we need each other more than we ever have before. Immediately after floods and other disasters, Mutual Aid Disaster Relieflistens to affected community members and responds with supplies and work crews, amplifying the grassroots, community-led initiatives that blossom following disasters.

Join the New York City General Defense Committee for this two-day training on resisting disaster capitalism and community organizing for disaster preparedness lead by MADR.
