About Asheville Mutual Aid Connection
Asheville Mutual Aid Connection was started in September 2020 as a seedling of an idea presented to We Keep Us Safe, an informal coalition of vouched local leftist activists & organizers that came together during the height of the uprisings. -this section included for 'historical context' for summit presentation, may delete for final local rollout]
With the intention of building long-term, sustainable, inter-community networks of support & resource sharing, AMAC strives to address the poverty of both resources & human connection that systemically create obstacles for us to organize together in our full power.
Mutual Aid Connection aims to connect individuals who are seeking free & accessible services/resources with individuals who can offer them, so that our communities can rely less on state and capitalist institutions, and more on direct person-to-person support.
We just finished building the platform, and are curious to seeing how it grows & evolves when we bring it into communities.
By creating alternative networks of care rooted in mutual aid, intersectional anarcho-feminism, abolition, transformative justice, and harm reduction, we dream of a world of autonomous, horizontal abundance where we will be able to do away with the current carceral, settler-colonial, white heteropatriarchal state all together.
