Who We Are

Common Root is 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to providing a welcoming, supportive community space with resources for the purpose of mutual inspiration, education, and connection.


We work to cultivate unity in our shared values of peaceful coexistence and compassion, cooperation and direct democracy, social and ecological responsibility, economic justice and solidarity, and investment in community spaces.

What We Do

We’re broadening social consciousness to improve our local and global communities.

We provide for the advancement of the arts and encourage a culture of inclusive support by facilitating free community-building events. Bring your ideas and your passion, your friends and your family — all of our events are inclusive and free.

We also provide resources available to the community:

  • Radical lending library – containing books, documentaries, and movies you would be unlikely to find elsewhere.

  • Free meeting space for local radical and progressive groups in line with our mission.

We hope you can drop by and check us out!

We are funded through the efforts of volunteers and by donations from the community. We are always in need of donations (every little bit helps) to keep our events free and open to the public. We also offer formal memberships for those who want to give regularly. Click through below or email if you’re interested.
