In January and February, UUJAZ partnered with Mutual Aid Phoenix and Black Mesa Resistance camp to collect resources for land defenders in their 4th decade of resisting relocation and exploitation, and defending Diné sovereignty. UUs from all over Arizona pitched in and shared their surplus, shopped for extra, and wrangled coworkers and neighbors to do the same! Many more contributed financially to the purchase of hard-to-find items.
I was overjoyed to see so many UUs really showing up for the mutual aid supply drive! We received supplies at several drop sites, and we had an amazing team of UU volunteers tirelessly sorting, inventorying, boxing, and packing up supplies.
You did it! Thanks for being part of the interconnected web of existence and practicing mutual aid!
