Help us build
We are looking for support: these documents were put together in a few hours by some friends and we definitely need help from more people to get this thing going on the scale that we need. Here are some roles that need to be filled:
Spreading the word -- We need to spread the word about what we’re doing in concise and clear ways to ALL parts of Waltham -- help us make and distribute flyers, spread the word online, and reach out to other friends.
Translations/Language Justice -- Please reach out if you have capacity to translate some of our materials into Spanish, Portuguese, or Haitian Creole.
Org Org -- Why reinvent the wheel? Waltham is filled with awesome organizations that already have tons of resources and skills. We want to form networks with them to maximize mutual aid! Help us reach out to existing networks and figure out how to power up together. See below for a list that is currently being created for local resources.
Budgeting -- Determining financial needs and distribution based on principles of harm reduction and effectivity.
