We believe that each of us has a role to play to create an economy that works for all of us. Localists go beyond supporting local businesses, and encourage deeper connections to where we live and one another. Our network is building relationships across sectors in communities throughout North America, leading a movement of people who know that it’s possible to create an economy that works for everyone. Join Us. 

Localism Starts
with You.

Join the movement.

I stand for an economy that works for all of us – and I refuse to accept that “business as usual” is the best we can do. I believe my work and the way I engage in my community can be a reflection of who I am, what I love, and how I want to be in the world.

As a Localist I will:
* Promote collaboration over competition, and cooperation over hierarchy
* Recognize that my capital has power, and keep dollars where my heart lives
* Cultivate and choose connection, in my business and community
