I wanted to create a piece that reflects the positive impact mutual aid can have and has had on communities, especially during the time of this pandemic. I was inspired by mutual aid organizations bringing communities together and helping build futures. I wrote this piece from the viewpoint of an individual who received those effects from mutual aid during times of desperation in the pandemic, and how it changed and inspired them to become involved and promote keeping community groups like this alive.
