Mutual Aid Hartford is a sustainable community-run network of needs and offers started by people of color and sustained by our neighbors and partners in action (not charity – solidarity). This group came to life as a response to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on our communities and organizers and is currently working to form a community council, hiring grassroots organizers, launching the community raised “Resist Evictions” fund, and more.Mutual Aid Hartford asked for help exploring different digital platforms to host a needs/offers site and an exploration of different models of mutual aid in communities. The communications products this group created included a report on mutual aid, a sample organizers map and a mock up needs/offers form.
