Be A Localist: Theory of Change

You can find BALLE’s Theory of Change right here.



BALLE is cultivating the emergence of a new economy by hosting communities of practice that name, connect, nourish, and illuminate the local economy leaders who are inventing alternatives to our broken economic system.

  • NAME: We identify innovative leaders and their communities so they feel validated and empowered.
  • CONNECT: We connect them with other leaders so they can build supportive peer relationships and collective impact.
  • NOURISH: We nourish this network of leaders by equipping them with research that proves their impact, financial support, mentors, and effective processes that help them to succeed.
  • ILLUMINATE: Finally, we illuminate the work of these leaders and their communities by telling their stories more broadly so that others can see a path to follow.
