This week, Cartier talks with T, founder of UBLC Atlanta, a community organization focused on dismantling systems and creating support from within through mutual aid. T and Cartier discuss the five types of community (interest, action, place, practice, + circumstance), mutual aid, and the reciprocal exchange of resources and services for mutual aid benefit.
As we are all caught up in the tumultuous Election Day cycle, protests aren’t receiving the same widespread coverage they did in the wake of George Floyd and it appears a lot of people have stopped screaming Black Lives Matter. But guess what? They still matter (Black women, we see you, fighting to mobilize the vote and protect democracy more than any other person in this country) and organizations are here doing a lot of great work to directly benefit their communities. This work deserves our attention and requires the spread of information, volunteers, and donations.
