Occupy the Omni Commons

How to Request an Event

As of March 2020, Omni Commons has cancelled all pending events and requests in adherence to the current “Shelter in Place” edict issued by Alameda County, and out of care for the health and well-being of our community.

Please get in touch if you had an event contract and would like a refund or would like to postpone your event – we will do our best to reach out to all renters as quickly as possible.

When faced with the threat of covid-19 and capitalism, Omni Commons remains committed to be a place to organize, to collaborate, to learn, to celebrate and to develop networks of mutual aid. We must however take caution and act responsibly to protect our community. We ask that organizers interested in using the Omni as a space for mutual aid activities review and implement the following guidelines. 

Commons Use Protocol Under COVID-19

If you are a grassroots or non-profit organization looking to organize a mutual aid event providing essential services to the community, please fill out the request form below.

Thank you for your support and the work you continue to do for our communities. 

Love and Solidarity, 

Commons Working Group
