Maurice Cook, executive director of Serve Your City DC and leader in Ward 6 Mutual Aid Network (MAN), joins Community Under Covid for our inaugural program. We discuss

  • the MAN model,
  • how the District is supporting and not (yet) supporting the effort,
  • how individuals can participate, and
  • the long-existing systems of oppression MANs work to address.

We touch on the idea of viewing the Exodus story as the tale of the largest ever MAN, a concept picked up from SVARA: The Traditionally Radical Yeshiva’s online (free, open, queer-centered) Mishnah Collective.

Tune in to We Act Radio Wednesday, 4/15, at 11 a.m. or check back for recording.
