We are holding this event in order to drum up some interest in these local mutual aid projects as well as to bring people together to meet and talk about other projects in need of starting, current needs, future events, and anything else that we feel needs addressed.

YOU HAVE SKILLS – Evaluating What Skills You Can Bring to Radical Organizing

Affinity Groups – Buddies, Quick Consensus, Spokes-councils

Cultivating Roots Community Garden

They would also like help installing a free pantry located at the garden. They will be working with FNB to ensure that the garden is producing as much food for as many people as possible.

***UPDATE 10/25*** New compost will be added to the beds and finish getting the garden ready for winter by some final weeding, collecting seeds, and planting winter cover. This time we hope to get more of the housing community members to come out and join.

Food Not Bombs – Chehalis River

Will be tabling some tasty vegan food made with ingredients from the garden, as well as looking to recruit some volunteers for future organizing and actions. (think community fridges, free pantries, etc). They will also be accepting donations of any food products AIA cannot make use of such as fresh produce.

***UPDATE 10/25*** FNB is calling all artists to come and help finish their banner, they have a new blog post all about the next steps for making a Food Not Bombs group. They are trying to connect with the houseless community to find out where and when are the best for tabling a weekly meal.

Activism In Action Collective

Is and has been working closely with many mutual aid groups in the PNW region to bring supplies to people affected by COVID-19, wildfires, and capitalism generally.

They will be collecting weekly for continuous deliveries throughout the region and locally at least until the end of the year. Please follow them on Facebook and check below for a current needs list from Fire Igniting the Spirit, Snack Bloc PDX and Symbiosis PDX.
