Mutual Aid

What is Mutual Aid & Why it is important

By Laura Fuchs


Being separated from our students and families, it is hard not to feel helpless in the face of all of this unknown. While it is important to advocate for the government to step up and support our families, we know that there are immediate needs that are still not being met. But community members are stepping up to help each other using what is known as Mutual Aid.

From Big Door Brigade: "Mutual aid is a term to describe people giving each other needed material support, trying to resist the control dynamics, hierarchies, and system-affirming, oppressive arrangements of charity and social services. Mutual aid projects are a form of political participation in which people take responsibility for caring for one another and changing political conditions, not just through symbolic acts or putting pressure on their representatives in government, but by actually building new social relations that are more survivable."

Washington Teachers’ Union and Fox 5 Partner to Air Lessons on TV

Washington Teachers’ Union and Fox 5 Partner to Air Lessons on TV

“Learning Doesn’t StopLessons on TV” Geared Primarily

for Students without Laptops


WASHINGTONThe Washington Teachers’ Union is partnering with Fox 5 and its sister station, Fox 5 Plus (WDCA), to air lessons on television, starting Monday, March 30, for students who do not have access to laptops or Wi-Fi during school closures.

The lessons, presented by District of Columbia Public Schools teachers, will begin Monday on Fox 5 Plus at 10 a.m. Each day of the week will feature a 30-minute lesson aligned with district learning standards for a particular grade group. Mondays will be for early childhood learners and first-graders; Tuesdays for second- and third-graders; Wednesdays for fourth- and fifth-graders; Thursdays for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders; and Fridays for ninth- through twelfth-graders. Lessons will mostly be in the subjects of English language arts, math and history.

The program is called “Learning Doesn’t Stop—Lessons on TV.”

“We’re doing this because at least 30 to 40 percent of our city’s students do not have access to a computer. They shouldn’t be left out of distance learning because of their economic circumstance,” said WTU President Elizabeth Davis. “Even with the city’s recent investment in 16,400 new laptops and thousands more available in our schools, DCPS has been slow to release them to every student who needs one. Every child needs an equal chance to learn while schools are closed, and we’re working to help fill the gap with lessons on TV.”

Patrick Paolini, general manager of Fox 5, said the station was thrilled to team up with WTU in this time of crisis.

“Fox 5 is committed to serving the community in any way we can. The lessons on WDCA taught by our community heroes—teachers—will help kids keep learning as we all get through the coronavirus crisis together in a variety of ways,” Paolini said.

The lessons on WDCA will be promoted daily on Fox 5’s “Good Day DC” morning show and on TEGNA-owned CBS affiliate WUSA9’s “Great Day Washington” morning program.

“Helping our community’s children to keep learning is one of the greatest public services we can provide during this trying time,” said Richard Dyer, president and general manager of WUSA9. “We’re glad to partner in this effort to make sure D.C. students have access to various avenues for learning.”

Teachers also will post the lessons on WTU’s website, www.wtulocal6.net, so students and their families can work on the lessons discussed throughout the week.
