Let’s get the ball rolling!
Atlanta Resistance Medics is a non-hierarchical affinity group--a group of individuals coming to work together for common goals and principles without top-down leadership--dedicated to bringing the tools and knowledge of medicine into the hands of the people. We believe that the barriers to healthcare (social, economic, and legislative) are unacceptable, and that effective change can be brought NOW through education and community action. Our foundational activities are providing medic support at protests and free training in skills from advanced first-aid to day-to-day community health. You can learn more about us and how to get involved on our website, www.atlantaresistancemedics.org, and on our Facebook page (Atlanta Resistance Medics) and Instagram (@ATLresistancemedics).
Started in the winter of 2021, we host two free clinics and health/hygiene supply distros every month--on the first Saturday of every month 11am-2pm at Woodruff park downtown, and the third Saturday 12pm-2:30pm on the corner of Jonesboro and Rhodesia in Lakewood. Items and care are given to anyone who asks, without means testing or invasive data collection.
Our clinics are in continual need of financial support. In order to provide accessible care twice a month, we spend close to a hundred dollars on every clinic-- imagine how much we could do with $300, $400, $500!
