Act Local: Advocacy Work
Local First is a nonprofit business alliance that works with local, independent businesses to build an economy that values people, the planet, and prosperity for everyone.

We advocate on behalf of our 250 member businesses on issues that are relevant to owning a local, independent business and issues that promote an economy that values the triple bottom line, described above.

As a member, we would like to hear from you on issues that are relevant to your business! As a small nonprofit, we will prioritize issues that affect more of our business members than issues only relevant to one member.
