The Library of the Commons’s Convergence events are a platform for organizers to share about their work with the larger community. In light of the accelerating COVID-19 outbreak, we are using this Convergence to give a platform to mutual aid work in Atlanta.
This event is ONLINE. Tune in to hear from grassroots organizations and collectives doing great work share how they are responding to the Coronavirus pandemic and how you can support their efforts or receive aid.
This event is to support relationships and information flows across efforts and make our communities more resilient in the process.
