People self-organize to help each other through the Covid-19 crisis

 

3rd Wednesday co-host Sara from Portland Assembly joins Paul to talk about the PDX Covid-19 Mutual Aid Network and other efforts to provide direct assistance with shopping and other forms of collective self-help.

At least two Facebook groups have sprung up recently to provide information and assistance for people during the Covid-19 pandemic:
