Localism Starts With You.

After months of working to create a new web platform to share the tools and resources you said you needed most, we’re excited and proud to launch a new BALLE website! The new bealocalist.org is designed to help further the movement toward healthy, equitable local economies by better connecting Localism leaders on the ground, providing easy-to-access tools to support your efforts, and illuminate the stories of what is working in communities across North America.

Now you can…



Name your commitment to support an economy that works for all – and invite others to join us.



Dig into our Local Economy Framework – 8 strategies that can help you put Localism into action.


Discover people & communities you can connect with or learn from in your community and beyond.



Reference our library of case studies, infographics, webinars, & more as you develop local solutions.

Explore the new site and tell us what you think! We invite you to share feedback – and to
share stories of Localism in your community – as you join us in creating healthy, equitable local economies that work for all.
