Our Vision

The Omni Commons is comprised of several Bay Area collectives with a shared political vision—one that privileges a more equitable commoning of resources and meeting of human needs over private interests or corporate profit.

We invite you to join us in establishing a safe, productive place to pool resources for the collective use and stewardship of the greater community. A space that fosters an ethic of radical collaboration across disciplines and between individual collectives, creating a living model for future radical spaces. Learn more about our history, vision and values at our wiki!

The Commons

As a commons, Omni is a community center that supports open access to the resources that sustain life.

This is the basement, one space in the building where we gather to hold classes, events, and our weekly collective meetings.
