Greater Charlotte Area Mutual Aid Capital Campaign
Greater Charlotte Area Mutual Aid (GCAMA) is a youth-led organization that facilitates community and practices radical hospitality in solidarity — not charity.
The mission of GCAMA is to serve individual and community needs during this state of local, national, and global emergency. We aim to accomplish this through facilitating community using our 3R Framework for Solidarity: Resilience, Resources, & Relationships. We believe it takes a community to come together and support each other through solidarity to affect real and meaningful change. GCAMA is not a typical charitable organization. Our work attempts to break away from traditional models of nonprofit organizations to provide equitable support for all members in our community. While both traditional nonprofits work to address the impacts of social inequality, mutual aid attempts to dismantle the systems that create these inequalities in the first place.
