Mutual Aid Funds
- Mutual Aid Disaster Relief – www.Mutualaiddisasterrelief.org
Mutual Aid Disaster Relief is a grassroots disaster relief network based on the principles of solidarity, mutual aid and autonomous direct action. By working with, listening to and supporting impacted communities, especially their most vulnerable members, to lead their own recovery, the group strives to build long-term, sustainable and resilient communities. Mutual Aid Disaster Relief responds to disasters, educates about community organizing as disaster preparedness and collaborative neighborhood crisis response, collects and disseminates lessons learned in the field, and supports and provides a connective tissue between other grassroots groups doing response work.
- Imagine Water Works – https://www.imaginewaterworks.org/
Imagine Water Works is a New Orleans place-based group with a global vision. Since 2012 they have helped lead local changes about how residents think about living with water, working in an intersection of reducing risk from flooding, pollution and natural hazards. Their core focus areas are climate justice, water management, and disaster readiness and response. The Mutual Aid Response Network is a group of Louisiana residents, led by Imagine Water Works, that activates during floods, storms and other natural and manmade disasters. All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Ida, as well as essential preparation for the rest of hurricane season.
