How-To Organize your friends & neighbors 

As things get harder, we need to show up for our neighbors. Designate yourself as the neighborhood point person and take on the responsibility of reaching out to your neighbors, checking in on what needs are arising on your block, coordinating a neighborhood group chat or phone tree, and staying in touch with the point people from other neighborhoods for resource pooling. here is a link to “Mutual Aid Medford AndSOmerville (MAMAS)” resources.
