Pledge to rename “aid”

Please make a pledge: alternative words to “aid”

I recognize the word “aid” is one of many problematic words used in the global solidarity sector. It undermines solidarity and masks the root causes of poverty & inequalities between and within countries. Whilst sometimes “aid” is necessary to describe the current status quo, I note the alternatives suggested by the Track Changing Initiative and pledge to use them in my communications instead of “aid” whenever appropriate. Suggested alternatives are: Global Redistribution, Global Solidarity, Global Equity Gap, Global Collaboration, Global Equalization. [fund or finance or budget to be attached as necessary].
