Abolition & Mutual Aid

Panel 1

What We Do

We are abolitionists fighting for the rights of unhoused people through mutual aid and direct action. Born out of Boulder DSA‘s direct action working group in 2018.

Our primary focus is our survival programs. Currently, we organize two-to-three food and supply distributions each week, plus occasional emergency cold-weather survival distros and a pop-up warming shelter.


We organize weekly food and supply distros every Tuesday and Wednesday evening, and most Thursdays. These distros are fairly mobile around downtown, but meet at the same place and time every week:

Tuesday: Meets at 6:00pm downtown.
Wednesday: Meets at 5:30pm downtown.
Thursday: Meets at 6:00pm downtown.

What We Believe

Our members hold various political beliefs to the left of the neoliberal mainstream of American politics. Some of us identify as anarchist, communist, socialist, anti-colonial, or various combinations thereof. We work together under the common cause of our points of unity:

  • We are anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-fascist, and anti-police.
  • We recognize the intersectional nature of oppression.

We are committed to mutual aid, not charity. We do not provide aid based on moral judgment. We do not use aid to try to control people’s lives or behavior. We believe in self-determination and that people are the best judges of their own needs.
