About


The Ward 3 Mutual Aid team is part of the DC Mutual Aid Network, a citywide grassroots movement initiated by BIPOC organizers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mutual aid is direct support among neighbors. In the last year, the Ward 3 team has answered over 4000 calls on our community hotline, and made over 1400 grocery deliveries in our ward. We provide about $2550 of free groceries and hot meals to our Ward 3 neighbors every week, plus we commit an additional average of $640 a week to supporting other wards.

Join our organizing for collective liberation and develop relationships with neighbors that are rooted in radical care. Mutual aid, unlike charity, empowers people to give and receive help as part of our community. We may each have little to give, but all together we are powerful!

If 1,000 neighbors across our ward each gave somewhere between $5 and $100 a month, we would have a generous and reliable budget to take care of groceries and so much more. We want to continue and expand our work, but our finances are often uncertain week to week. Several times, we have temporarily closed the hotline while we fundraised. Imagine the possibilities for us expand our support: both within our ward, and to our neighbors across the city!
