About Us

Common Root is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, part of your grassroots community.


Common Root provides a welcoming and supportive community-run 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 facilitate the advancement of the arts and a culture of inclusive support through free community-building events. Bring your ideas and your passion, your friends and your family.

We host weekly events which you can find on our calendar page. We provide resources available for the community which can be used during any of our events. Our resources include:

  • A radical lending library – containing books, documentaries, and movies you would be unlikely to find at most libraries.
  • Free meeting space for local radical and progressive groups in line with our mission.

We hope you can drop by and check us out.

Common Root Mutual Aid Center is located at 211 N 14th St,  #323, Lincoln NE 68508. See our calendar or come to our weekly meetings every Thursday at 7:30 pm (Central Time). If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

We are always looking for new people to get involved and be a part of the collective. If you would like to become a member, all you have to do is come to our meetings or events and help out.

We are funded by the fundraising 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. Email donate@commonroot.net if you’re interested.
