Why Mutual Aid?
The people of Jefferson County, Washington count on each other. JeffCo Mutual Aid is focused on one thing: giving money to people who lost their jobs or are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis. Many people in our community have been laid off without an understanding of when their jobs – or their paychecks – will return. But we don’t have to wait. We can take care of each other now. Our love is stronger than the systems that fail to support us.
In the words of a Seattle group we’re inspired by: “this is solidarity, not charity”. Our community thrives together. All of us rely on the people who make restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals, bars, galleries, nonprofits, schools, and more run. Without supportive systems, our community hurts. JeffCo Mutual Aid knows that we need systemic change. We also know that we can take steps today to ease the damage Jefferson County will experience from this crisis.
