West Street Recovery


“For a glimpse at how a different world might take root even in the middle of a system shock, consider the case of West Street Recovery … In this community, struck by disaster after disaster, they’ve found ways to move through both the recurring shocks and the systemic ills that give rise to them at once. 

What would change about the ways we live in this age of disaster if we invested in that kind of localized mutual aid all over the globe?”
