The League for Mutual Aid was a national organization founded with the goal of helping workers and others in personal emergencies. They provided personal and group loans, legal advice, employment and housing aid, and medical referrals. Their records reflect daily operations, including fund-raising and loan-granting activities, until their liquidation and absorption by the Human Rights Fund of the Workers' Defense League.
