Building a Local Living Economy

We’ve heard this before: “each dollar spent with a local business has a multiplier effect as it recirculates within your community- creating more quality jobs and greater stability.”

Come learn what is being done locally, and what you can do to make this a reality.

We will review the BALLE Foundation’s 8-step Local Economy Framework and hear from some community leaders who are working to promote local community investment, sustainability, and accountability. Panelists include: Arpana Jonnal (Hillsborough Clean Investing Coalition), Carl Rist (People’s Alliance/Durham County Living Wage Project), Tami Schwerin (Abundance NC/Slow Money), and Gabe Treves-Kagan (Latino Community Credit Union).
