Get involved and help out!
We gladly encourage all our friends and supporters to volunteer and get involved in our ongoing projects. Ask us how you can help!
Current Projects That The Wingnut Anarchist Collective is Involved In
Richmond Food Not Bombs – Cooks at 12:30 every Sunday at the Wingnut, shares food in Monroe Park at 4. Organizational Meetings are at 1pm on the first Sunday of every month
Richmond Copwatch – We observe and record the police. We conduct Know Your Rights and How to Copwatch trainings upon request.
Craft Night – Not regularly scheduled, but we promote a DIY ethic and host screenprinting, zine-making, and craft events on a semi-regular basis.
Southern Barton Heights Mobile Food Pantry – Monthly distribution of food to 200 households in the neighborhood.
Monday Morning Grocery Distribution – We distribute groceries in front of the house, on Monday morning at 7am.
How you can help:
Donating time- come to events, be participatory, help maintain projects that already exist or help start new ones.
Particular skill sets that would be REALLY useful to us include
People with medical experience (doctors, naturopaths, doulas, acupuncturists, etc) particularly in the areas of dental, child, elder, and prenatal care.
Lawyers (civil, criminal defense, and property)
Construction (especially plumbers)
Farmers/Gardeners (either those willing to help set up community gardens and urban farms, or those with surplus that they would like to donate)
Bike and Automotive mechanics
Donate resources -
Lumber, piping, tools, bikes/bike parts, seeds, finished compost, restaurant equipment, printer paper, books, board games, children’s toys, printer ink, printers, craft supplies, basically anything that could conceivably be useful to someone, we can use and would appreciate.
Of particular interest would be if you have the ability to provide free web hosting for any or all of the projects listed above.
Donate money – Got a settlement from that asshole yuppie who hit you while you were riding your bike and got a settlement for more money than you know what to do with? Can’t spend your trust fund fast enough? Robbed a bank? (just kidding!) Unfortunately we live in a society where money isn’t optional for a lot of things. If you’d like to throw your cash at us, you can either do so in person, through the mail, or via our handy little paypal button. If you’d like your donation to be for a specific project we’re involved in, let us know and we’ll make sure it gets there.
And finally, and possibly most importantly, IF YOU SEE SOMETHING THAT NEEDS DONE, START DOING IT. We’ll probably help you out.
