How Can We Show Up For Mutual Aid? with Dean Spade
Play • 51 min

This week on Getting Curious, the writer, activist, and educator Dean Spade joins Jonathan to discuss how we can meet our neighbors’ survival needs through mutual aid, and better understand the systems we live under in the process. Listen in to learn about what mutual aid is, how it differs from charity, and why local wisdom is essential for sweeping change.

 

Dean Spade has been working to build queer and trans liberation based in racial and economic justice for the past two decades. He’s the author of Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law, the director of the documentary “Pinkwashing Exposed: Seattle Fights Back!,” and the creator of the mutual aid toolkit at BigDoorBrigade.com. His latest book, Mutual Aid: Building Solidarity During This Crisis (and the Next), was published by Verso Press in October 2020.

Mini-Ep 181: Universally Endorsed By All
Kate falls for another Instagram ad preying on her desire for long 80’s-style nails, and Doree needs a great sporty sunscreen recc. Then, listeners ask for drugstore beauty reccs available in Canada, question budgeting for wellness, and remind us that there is no one-size-fits-all for relationships.
