The Mutual Aid Network Of Ypsilanti
The MANY is a fully volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping our most marginalized community members.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a collective of community organizers structured as a worker self-directed 501(c)3 nonprofit.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
Creating survival programs for our most marginalized community members while building alternative systems to move our community towards economic cooperation, self-determination and abundance.
HOW ARE WE DOING IT?
Our methodology is one of mutual aid and solidarity – meaning we are working and struggling with our neighbors and community instead of taking the conventional “top down” charity approach that replicates the systems of inequality and contributes to the very poverty and scarcity that we are fighting against. We aim to accomplish this by inviting the community into this work, sharing our access and privilege and building solutions together.
