We provide street medic care at mass demonstrations and marches, facilitate health and wellness workshops and skillshares, and empower our community with information and education to help themselves.
ARM was initially a loose group of individuals functioning as the medical committee of the Occupy Atlanta encampment. We staffed a volunteer medical tent 24/7 and organized volunteers to provide first aid for demonstrations. A group of us wanted to see these efforts transform into something larger and independent of the Occupy movement. ARM was officially formed on November 20th, 2011, after a weekend long street medic training provided by members of Mutual Aid Street Medics.
We are not open to new membership at this time.
