Selis Manor COVID-19 Solidarity Aid

Selis Manor is a NYC-based community that houses blind and visually-impaired people and their families. People's Power Assemblies (PPA) is an advocacy and activist group that has responded to the call to provide fresh food and supplies for Selis Manor residents, a population at increased risk of developing complications due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our goal is to deliver groceries and essential supplies directly to 200 households within the Selis Manor community, free of charge. We hope to raise over $25,000, a sum that would enable us to support participating households for approximately 4 months. At this time, we are offering one weekly shipment per household, and handling registration on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Your contribution of funds (or supplies) to this mutual aid project will enable us to maintain, and possibly increase our ability to assist additional households at Selis Manor.

Please contact [email redacted] for additional information on this initiative and how to get more involved yourself.

Thanks for your time and solidarity.

"Mutual aid projects are a form of political participation in which people take responsibility for caring for one another and changing political conditions, not just through symbolic acts or putting pressure on their representatives in government, but by actually building new social relations that are more survivable."
