Community care is a term that refers to collective efforts whereby people use their privilege to ensure the wellbeing of individuals and families in their community. Unlike self-care, which places the onus of compassion onto individuals to take care of themselves, community care requires more than one person to function and asks us to instead take care of one another.
Our Community Care Squad meets each month for a few hours doing housework, yardwork and cooking for a BIPOC community member. We pay for them to enjoy a wellness activity, such as massage, craniosacral, dining or some form of family entertainment while we offer caring. We give preference to single parents and/or activists.
Want to become involved? We need cleaners, food donations, service donations and monetary contributions.
