Collective care/mutual aid

Mutual aid: voluntary reciprocal exchange of resources and services for mutual benefit. It is a communal way to give and receive support. It is when people work together to meet each other’s basic survival needs and practice care with a shared understanding that the systems we live under are not going to meet our needs and we can do it together RIGHT NOW!
