When Localists come together, magic happens.

BALLE partners with Localist leaders at events all across North America, harnessing the power of connection and collective action to advance our movement for economic change. By working together in your community, we aim to accelerate the spread of the numerous strategies and successes our movement is generating, and also learn first-hand how we can better serve you in your community. We will be there, will you?
