What Spends Here Stays Here:
Developing West Louisville's Economy from Within
As we work to inspire the "Buy Local" movement throughout Louisville, efforts to support local businesses in neighborhoods of West Louisville are imperative.
This is why LIBA is proud to partner with the American Independent Business Alliance, Louisville Forward, the West Louisville Dream Team, OneWest, Center for Neighborhoods, Concerned Pastors of Russell, the University of Louisville and many others, to push an important dialogue on increasing diversity in our local business economy.
On Saturday, November 4th, we invite you to join us for a powerful workshop. At this workshop, we will do the following:
- Identify local social assets we currently undervalue
- Focus direct efforts to connect people and resources that may often be disconnected
- Build community collaboration and cohesion
- Generate an asset map linking the diversity of relationships inherent in building sustainable local economic capacity
With this workshop, we will learn about each other as individuals, as well as the institutions, organizations, and businesses we represent, and discuss how we can align capacities to support growth and diversity from within the community.
Derek Peebles, practitioner of Asset-Based Community Development, will facilitate the gathering. Derek also serves on the board of AMIBA, and directs the Economics of Compassion Initiative in Cincinnati, OH.
Please join us for this important event. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided, as well as child care if arranged inadvance.
