New Haven Area Mutual Aid Fund

December 2020 UPDATE: To contribute to the Semilla Collective's fundraising to expand our mutual aid and food distribution work in 2021, please go to our new fundraising page: 
We are in the midst of a crisis. A lot of people are struggling amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

We're coming together as a community to help each other out through Mutual Aid networks. If you can contribute financially, please do! If you can share this in your networks, please do!

How will the money be used? 100% of funds raised go towards direct financial assistance or essential items (food, diapers, toilet paper, etc), supporting New Haven area community members who are disproportionately affected by this crisis. We are partnering with local organizers to distribute cash and survival resources directly to individuals and families who might not have access to internet spreadsheets, Venmo accounts, etc.

Who are we? We're organizers working with the Semilla Collective of New Haven for labor and immigration justice! If you have questions, reach out to point people Sarah Eppler-Epstein, Eden Almasude, and Kelly Hernández Naranjo at [email redacted].

Here is the New Haven Independent article  about the New Haven Area Mutual Aid Fund, and CTCORE's Connecticut-wide fund.
