to the commons

<< where love is revolution >>

next world commons is a community-based non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide creativity and community-building resources in the spirit of healing justice and on a sliding scale basis to all individuals, regardless of gender, race, class, and dis/ability.
next world commons is committed to bringing circle processes, open dialogues, panel discussions, conferencing, peer guidance, and other restorative practices to institutions, organizations and communities. Our team is skilled and diverse, offering different perspectives and areas of focus.

We wish to acknowledge that the region that we serve is the occupied territory of Lenapehoking of the Lenape peoples, attributed to the unverified Treaty of Shackamaxon, 1628.

No social change for justice is possible if that change is not informed by a physics of love, a mode of civic affinity that instructs our political and worldly organizations, our societies.
