Mutual Aid for People Impacted by Incarceration

The NYC Holiday Financial Solidarity for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated People and Their Families Mutual Aid Project was created by NYC organizers to offer a simple way for people in the NYC to support each other during this crisis, now during the holidays. We hope this project will provide material to support those who are or have been incarcerated and their families, and are in need of financial support. 

We learned from organizers like Mariame Kaba, Dean Spade, Kelly Hayes and Delia Gando about mutual aid and are thankful for their leadership and examples of how to do this.   

We hope you will consider donating to support folks in financial need. 

Are you directly-impacted by incarceration and enduring financial strife during this crisis? 

Fill out this form to post a request. 

We hope to be able to offer financial aid up of $200 USD per request. We will distribute funds on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Keep in mind, we are not sure how many donations we will have or how many people will request aid.  

Aid will be given out in batches based on amount raised and number of requests for aid.  The funds will be transferred to Cameron's bank account and then transferred to those who have requested aid via venmo, paypal, cashapp or through a gift certificate.
