WE KEEP US SAFE
Whether it's our after-school enrichment and tutoring programs, or
life-saving work with Ward 6 Mutual Aid, our mission remains the same: provide Black and Brown youth and families the same resources and opportunities that others in DC already have. Today and into the future.
From Urgent to Sustainable
Since March 2020, Serve Your City has served as the infrastructure hub for Ward 6 Mutual Aid, responding to the COVID-19 crisis by coordinating efforts among grassroots organizers, passionate volunteers, and dozens of community-based organizations that have been doing the work since long before the pandemic.
All projects are in direct response to needs expressed by our community. This is mutual survival.
We deliver food & supplies to families, seniors and people living in encampments.
FOOD & SUPPLIES
We provide laptops, internet, tutoring & enrichment to students underserved by existing structures.
EDUCATION & ENRICHMENT
We share culturally-relevant public health information, masks & sanitizer, yoga, arts engagement & athletics.
HEALTH & WELL-BEING
We make the voices of our community heard. Liberation takes more than food and a laptop.
“No kid should depend on the love of others to have the things they deserve. If that exists in the world, then it exists for everyone.”
