Chaos or Community: Lessons in Mutual Aid from Puerto Rico After Maria
November 19, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Who do you turn to in times of ecological and economic crisis? After the US government failed to address much of the devastation from Hurricane Maria, Luis Rodriguez Sanchez, Christine Nieves and their neighbors in Puerto Rico turned to each other. They established Proyecto de Apoyo Mutuo Mariana, a mutual aid project to restore vital community services in the wake of the storm.
On November 19th, come hear Luis and Christine, along with speakers from Chicago Boricua Resistance and the Chicago DSA Solidarity Economy Working Group, to learn how we can use mutual aid to respond to the ecological and economic crisis of capitalism here in Chicago as well.
