Mutual Aid and Online Events

Truthsgiving is about doing the Truth. The Truth in front of us is that so many of our communities are hurting in many ways, so each of our crews will fill a need at home. 

 

We have multiple mutual aid and online campaigns that will address the pandemics of health, housing, and resource extraction. Each of our coordinated cities have chosen one of the under-addressed problems caused by colonial capitalism and joined forces with their neighbors to create a new Truth, a Truth that shapes a better future.
