Community Roots is a grassroots Asheville, NC, non-profit dedicated to helping communities protect the planet and dismantle corporate rule.
We all know that the climate is rapidly changing, threatening our planet and most vulnerable communities.
Many of us feel helpless to make meaningful change as we watch the situation spiral out of control.
We see reports of the technological advances that are making renewable energy – including solar and wind power- more efficient and less expensive than climate changing fossil fuels.
So why are we not using these clean energy sources?
It’s illegal. State and Federal laws, often written by fossil fuel companies, prevent us from being able to choose the energy sources we want.
The Community Rights Movement is dismantling corporate rule,
putting people and planet over profits.
In a democracy the laws represent the will of the People.
We have a history of successfully abolishing laws that don’t reflect the will of the People — those that allowed people to be considered property and exploited our children.
It is time to change the laws that allow our planet to be plundered for the profit of a few while the People suffer the consequences.
A Community Bill of Rights is a local law that asserts our Right to make decisions about the places we live. It’s time we made some decisions about how our energy is produced.
Do you feel like there is something more you could be doing? Not sure what would help?
Community Roots is a grassroots, volunteer-based organization based in Asheville, NC. We thrive on volunteers who want to make an impact, aren’t afraid to shake up the status quo and live with enthusiasm!
We are funded by PROJECT100, a network of local businesses leading the way to a just an equitable transition to renewable energy.

We are sad that 4,000 gallons of kerosene leaked into the French Broad River this week. We tend to feel helpless when these insane accidents occur, but here is a way we can help! We are asking all who care about clean water and stopping pollution on our planet to join us this Saturday. Please bring flowers (roses have the highest vibration), rocks, crystals, tobacco, twigs, or any other organic offering that calls to you.
Join us on Saturday to honor our River. We will place our healing intentions into the offerings and then place them into the water to be carried down the river to bring healing to the river. Intention is powerful! We will make a difference! This gathering will held rain or shine! The River doesn’t care if she gets wet!
