The Brooklyn Commons

THE COMMONS is a radical movement-building space, only minutes from downtown Brooklyn. We provide resources which we hope will nurture our community. Groups and individuals are encouraged to use the COMMONS for workshops, classes, educational and cultural events. Everybody is accepted and valued without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, or religious background or expression. We reject racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and all forms of bigotry. Our goal is to foster discussion and dialogue across a wide political spectrum and among disparate groups. Classes and events hosted here do not necessarily reflect the COMMONS’ beliefs and values, other than our devotion to free speech. We believe that by providing space where all views, even those we oppose, can be presented, examined, and perhaps refuted, we are helping to build a more just and free society. The COMMONS offers affordable office and meeting spaces, as well as an event venue. We can host anything from parties and benefits to forums, performances, films, and workshops. Our café can offer light meals, desserts, fair-trade organic coffees, teas, wine, and beer during any event. If you are interested in meeting or event space, please contact us at
