What is intentional community?

The Foundation for Intentional Community (FIC) defines an intentional community as a group of people who have chosen to live together or share resources on the basis of common values. You may have heard of a commune, ecovillage, cohousing, coliving or student coop. These are all types of intentional communities – models for more cooperative, sustainable and just ways of life. FIC curates a directory of over 1,000 communities worldwide, as well as supplies resources, runs educational events and promotes community classifieds. Support our work by making a donation today!

Examining White Supremacy Culture in Intentional Community

Most intentional communities are predominantly (if not entirely) white. Even if this isn’t intentional, this isn't an accident or coincidence. Learn more about how white supremacy shows up in intentional communities in this article written by former FIC Director, Sky Blue.
