Mission Statement

Connect the Commons aims to create digital tools that foster resources sharing, mutual-aid, and economic self-determination in local communities.

Description

Connect the Commons is a non-profit 501(c)(3) LLC, working on building a widespread and easy to use resource sharing platform to support local communities and foster local resiliencey. We are building a platform that allows local communities to share and exchange time, skills, and physical goods, easily and efficently.

We believe that local communities are abundant, and that everything we need can be found directly around us, if we know our neighoors and work together. We strive to increase access to resources through connecting nieghboors and community members via our digital mutual-aid and local exchange networks. It is critical that all tools we create can be accessed for free and on public computers.

Our program connects local community members in the same region to exchange a variety of tools, goods, and services. These exchanges may take the form of barter, gifting, mutual-aid, or a more traditional monetary transaction. By doing this we strengthen the local economy, the lending economy, and the gift economy!
