BWC Community Care

A collection of offerings by and for BWC members to be of service to each other and to our values of mutual aid, collective care, and resilient innovation.

 

The BWC Mutual Aid Network: Our new listserv/email group that connects our members so that we can ask each other for help and offer to help in many different ways, from grocery shopping runs to requesting rides to asking and answering questions about Zoom, etc. Immigrants founded BWC in order to support, care for, and fight for each other. Our Mutual Aid Network is one more way that we continue that wonderful, vital tradition. We hope you will use this resource to ask for help and to offer your skills and availability.
