Twin Cities Mutual Aid Project (TCMAP)

Our tools include (1) an interactive, searchable map that tracks the hours, needs, and available goods at over 200 Twin Cities aid sites; (2) a directory of mutual aid resources that don’t easily fit on a map, like free medical and economic assistance programs; and (3) a mutual aid calendar that lists educational trainings, community-led action, and other local events.
