Heathen Cookbook Mutual Aid Index

Updated: Nov 17

The following is a list of mutual aid organizations who can provide assistance for people in need. Mutual aid is different from charity in that it is all about people helping people support each other, build community, and provide assistant in times of need. This information has been pulled from multiple sources, including It’s Going Down and Freedom News, and has been broken down by specific regions to make it easier to navigate where appropriate. National-level groups are listed at the top for each country. If you have information to submit please fill out this Google Form, select the Mutual Aid for the first question, and we will add it to this part of the Heathen Cookbook.
