Here we offer resources on various topics that may be of interest for those volunteering in mutual aid projects, or trying to start their own. Some of these resources come from our comrades at Mutual Aid Disaster Relief, the group that inspired our work. Other resources are from MADR co-conspirators and groups we find affinty with. We hope you can find inspiration from them as we have.

From The Channel Zero Podcast Network:
Rebel Steps Podcast – Season 1. Welcome to Rebel Steps. The Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire asked, “What can we do today so that we can do tomorrow what we cannot do today?” This podcast is about that question.
Coffee with Comrades Podcast Episode 85: “Against the End of the World” ft. Woodbine. This week, Pearson is joined by Matt and Johnny from Woodbine, an experimental community hub in Ridgewood, Queens, to chat about moving from mutual aid to disaster confederalism. Matt and Johnny also talk about why base-building is essential to dual-power strategies and discuss Woodbine and Hungry Monk’s ongoing community-organizing in the midst of COVID-19.
BONUS: “Skill-Share/Teach-In for Popular Uprisings. Due to these wild times we’re living in, some comrades and I in Capital City Mutual Aid wanted to put together a skill-share and teach-in on street action protests. In this episode, you’ll hear me talk way too much, but hopefully it’ll provide you with useful ideas/tips, and strategies. This was a digital meeting and I have done barely zero editing, so please forgive any weird sounds in the background. I just felt it was important to get this information out to folks as quickly as possible so that it could be disseminated and shared with folks on the ground who’re doing the work.
BONUS: Street Action PSA. As protests heat up, the Channel Zero Network has some reminders on how to stay safe while out in the streets.
