This forum acts as a glossary for some of the terms and concepts central to collective care. I will be adding to this as well as I hope community members share their thoughts about terminology and concepts. Maybe there's a term or an idea that you're not familiar with, or would like to know more about. Post a question here to get some information.

Mutual aid: I love this definition shared by Dean Spade in a recent democracy now interview. “When people band together to meet the immediate survival needs because of a shared understanding that the systems in place aren’t coming to meet them, or certainly not fast enough, if at all, and that we can do it together right now”. You can watch a clip of this interview by following this link. Dean also has an amazing video discussing mutual aid available here.
