Community Roots is a grassroots Asheville, NC, non-profit dedicated to helping communities protect the planet and dismantle corporate rule.
We believe communities have the right to make decisions about what happens to our water, air and soil over for-profit corporations.
We stand for the rights of nature and people over those of corporations.
We are working with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund to enact a Community Bill of Rights in Asheville and Buncombe County. This will enable citizens to prohibit the activities of corporations that pollute our water, air and soil and allow us to make ongoing decisions that affect us without interference from the State.
