Community Action Relief Project (CARP) is a mutual aid project committed to sharing resources and redistributing wealth throughout the Kensington community. Currently, we table outside our office on Kensington and Lehigh twice a week. During tabling, we hand out essential hygiene supplies, hot food, snacks, offer a phone charging station and first aid care, and host a small radical library. After distribution, we have group readings and discussions open to all. We also offer personalized assistance like help finding housing or applying for benefits.
We believe that the current capitalist system, founded on white supremacy and exploitation, is unjust. We fight for a world in which there are no prisons, police, houselessness, or underpaid jobs with rich bosses. A world in which resources are shared among the many rather than stolen and hoarded by a few, where everyone has food, shelter, medical care, and the freedom to live without exploitation or oppression. We do not expect politicians to make things better; they have long since abandoned the working class and are part of the problem! We are Communists, Anarchists, and Socialists committed to fighting for a better world. Join us!
