Mutual Aid

What is mutual aid?

Mutual aid groups strive to create solidarity among community members by supporting each other’s needs. You can read more about the principles of mutual aid at Mutual Aid NYC.

Where do we provide aid?

Our work centers around, but is not limited to, the Gowanus, Brooklyn neighborhood. We serve neighbors here and in nearby Park Slope and South Slope. The perimeters of our area of focus are defined as Bond Street to the west, Prospect Park to the east, Wyckoff Street/St. Mark's Place to the north, and 24th Street/Greenwood Cemetery to the south.

Where else can I help?

If you don't live in the area, there are many mutual aid groups scattered throughout the boroughs and neighborhoods of New York City. Take a look at Mutual Aid NYC's website for their resource library and directory of groups by location.
