Rhizome: An expanding underground root system, sending up above ground shoots to form a vast network. Difficult to uproot. The Rhizome Collective is a non-profit organization based out of a warehouse on the East Side of Austin, Texas. They operate an Educational Center for Urban Sustainability and a Center for Community Organizing, and are a consensus-run organization. They believe that all struggles against oppression and for self-determination are connected, and that it is important to construct viable alternatives while simultaneously fighting for social justice.
