Changing the way our local economy can improve starts with a single person. It starts with you! We have come to the understanding that change can only occur when promoting local prosperity begins at the local level. We believe that connecting the community, entrepreneurs and local business owners, who are willing to re-think their current understanding of economics and prosperity, and investing in the local economy movement, we can — and will — create a stronger, more resilient, and equitable economy where we all can improve our lives and our community.
We want to create a business and community alliance that consists of community values. Together we can build our local area community's economies, area by area, business by business. Real prosperity starts with each one of us!
Underlying all our work is a strong belief in “Prosperity for All.” The foundation of a new economy is an equitable society that values everyone. Localists know this requires working on multiple fronts. We focus on what we call the Essential Four.
Rather than the old saying of "United We Stand, Divided We Fall" we have modified it to: "United We Succeed, Divided We Fail."
