About


Northside Mutual Aid is people living in North Minneapolis supporting one another in this time.  We are housed and unhoused, and are all volunteers working together to ensure all residents have basic needs met throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic crisis.  We support each other with masks, meals, heat, and hope as we work to build a future for North Minneapolis where all of us have the resources to not merely survive but have the most power possible over our own lives.

The most pressing need we're addressing is basic survival for those of us living in an encampment in a vacant lot in Near North.

We also try to keep our needs updated on the Twin Cities Mutual Aid Map, but you can always donate all kinds of things more easily and during more hours at the Sanctuary Movement Supply Depot (more links), where it gets to camps in need on the Northside of Minneapolis and all over the twin cities.

Thank you for supporting your neighbors and please talk about what you want to offer, what you need, and what you think we must do collectively!
