SOLIDARITY NOT CHARITY
Southern Solidarity is a grassroots, community-based group of volunteers in solidarity with the unhoused in their quest toward liberation. We organize the delivery of food, medical resources and basic needs directly to the unhoused in the downtown area of New Orleans because the government has not filled this need. We are influenced by anti-imperialist principles and mobilized by a black queer woman.
As a group of 30, we organize the daily delivery of food, medical resources, and other basic needs directly to hundreds of unhoused people in the downtown area of New Orleans because the government has failed to meet needs. Southern Solidarity is involved in both direct relief and consciousness raising efforts of members and recipients in our collective struggle for liberation. Some among us are undocumented, formerly incarcerated, unhoused, trans, activists but more importantly, all among us are anti-imperialist.
Show your solidarity by donating to help get more supplies to distribute or volunteering for food prep and delivery.
