Founded when the first bus arrived from Texas in April of 2002, the Migrant Solidarity Mutual Aid Network (MSMA) is made up of community organizations and hundreds of individual volunteers who are committed to supporting migrants arriving in DC.
Why mutual aid?
In mutual aid, people work together to provide for one another's immediate survival because they know that the systems they currently live under will not. Mutual aid operates on the principle solidarity not charity and involves people at all levels of a community respecting one another’s autonomy as they support each other.
