#ShareMyCheck: Redistributing Stimulus Money for Justice & Mutual Aid (with Resource Generation & Movimiento Cosecha)
Stimulus checks from the US government are starting to hit bank accounts for qualifying citizens this week. What is going on with those checks, and if we don't need them for our own immediate survival, how can we think about redistributing for justice & mutual aid right now?
We spoke with Yahya Alazrak (Campaign Director at Resource Generation) and Dara Marquez (volunteer field organizer with Movimiento Cosecha) about the #ShareMyCheck campaigns they're leading. They share with us some amazing opportunities to move money to mutual aid funds and grassroots movement organizations during this crisis, especially to undocumented workers who are on the frontlines of essential work right now but did not qualify for any stimulus support.
