WSP Mutual Aid

For those looking to get involved and support direct, on-the-ground abolition and justice work, check out Washington Square Park Mutual Aid!

We organize with homeless communities and other marginalized people in Lower Manhattan. We provide food, water, clothes, and defense against NYPD “sweeps” of homeless encampments along with other services (we got a barber recently!) and training. Recently, there’s been an increase in police violence against the homeless, and combined with inflation this means financial strain is way up on everyone involved.

Check us out on social media at @WSPmutualaid, read this to learn about sweeps, and consider coming down on a Friday or donating a few bucks.
