About


The Ward 5 DC Mutual Aid Group is an informal group of individuals coming together as neighbors in Ward 5, connecting people in need with people who want to help during the COVID-19 crisis. We are not an organization, representatives of any organization, or at all affiliated with the DC government. We do our best to fulfill requests made by neighbors and match them with nearby volunteers who are willing and able to help.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please take a moment to fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScoHwezDrIhbEhQsSr_QbgSbOyq2ZJtsNCsYkNc5Y33C4n2Sw/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1rbnFNT-wfkZHIBXCGnEZXvHQ9XCiygm0YpjVBRHw5yeqwi3FzXdRHbug 

"Mutual aid is a term to describe people giving each other needed material support, trying to resist the control dynamics, hierarchies, and system-affirming, oppressive arrangements of charity and social services. Mutual aid projects are a form of political participation in which people take responsibility for caring for one another and changing political conditions, not just through symbolic acts or putting pressure on their representatives in government, but by actually building new social relations that are more survivable."
