Todo Para Todos

Building a home through mutual-aid alongside newly-arrived migrants + asylum seekers in Pilsen, Chicago

About


In the Summer of 2023, Todo Para Todos - meaning "Everything for Everyone" in Spanish - created a community home in an empty warehouse in Pilsen. Todo Para Todos is organized by a collective of volunteers working alongside over 200 newly arrived asylum seekers and migrants. 

While our shelter is now closed, we have successfully housed nearly all of our former residents into their own homes and we are currently working to ensure this group of new neighbors is standing on solid ground, ready to start their new lives in Chicago.

While Todo Para Todos was created to address the crisis of migrants arriving in Chicago without food, water, shelter, or any support, the influx of asylum seekers is not the root of the issue. The real crisis is a misallocation of resources by global capitalist systems. Our mission at Todo Para Todos is to show each other that we can take care of each other. We have the ability to organize ourselves, provide material resources, and co-create joy and community with nothing but people-power and intentionality.

While we no longer have a central location, we still need your support to help us keep this community a place of joy, understanding, and radical community building alive while we work to build solid footing and a welcoming space for our new neighbors. With your help, we can create a society that embraces our new neighbors and empowers them to build a life of dignity and purpose here in Chicago.

Funds will be used directly and immediately to fund the needs of our residents. These needs include but are not limited to food, clothing, medications, hygiene supplies, bedding, transport to court dates, Ventra cards, SIM cards, legal services, work authorization fees, help with utilities, and rental assistance.


Solidarity Links

We stand in solidarity with our comrades at the Chicago Police Station Response Team - a network of volunteers meeting the needs of recently arrived asylum seekers sheltering in police stations. Please consider supporting their efforts as well: https://opencollective.com/chipolicestationresponse

We also love Chicago Food Sovereignty Coalition, a coalition of autonomous mutual aid groups in Chicago and Cook County, working together to cultivate food sovereignty and autonomy for all people in all communities! https://opencollective.com/cfsc
