Step-by-Step: Building a Mutual Aid Network on Drupal

We'll walk through steps to building a Drupal-powered mutual aid network, including a "request" content type, views for that content type, and the Flag module to handle an ongoing flow of requests. A pilot version of this website was built for FutureHack 2021 and can be found at:, built on Drupal 9 with hosting sponsored by the Pantheon Heroes program.

This website supports communities in building up connections and opportunities for mutual support through a Request List. Any volunteer user may submit a request, or fulfill a request.
