mutual aid networks, covid-19, face masks 

We joined a local mutual aid network for our precinct. @mlemweb is making masks to give away octodon.social/@mlemweb/103935

... which are modified from our friend Dan's (CC BY!) design to give away to people who need them: talldog.dozuki.com/Guide/How+t

Now may be a good time to set up a mutual aid network. It can be as simple as a mailing list for your neighborhood where people post what they [HAVE] vs what they [NEED] and help each other out.

There are more advanced approaches to mutual aid networks and I know @bhaugen and friends are working on valueflo.ws/

Thanks for the mention, @cwebber

mutualaidnetwork.org/ is the on-the-groung mutual aid org that we know the most about, but I also know lots of others exist. Mutual aid is an idea whose time has come.

@cwebber

ActivityPub-Mutual Aid connections:

@lynnfoster @mayel @ivan and maybe some other people are working with mutualaidnetwork.org/ on something that will be based on ActivityPub.

In the meantime, @sl007 has redaktor.me/ already up and running which this blog post redaktor.ushahidi.io/posts/500 says is also based on ActivityPub, and we are also looking at that.
