Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Statement

Local First is strongly committed to the values of diversity, inclusion and equity as we recognize that such values strengthen our work for an economy grounded in local ownership that meets the basic needs of all people.  We also believe that practicing diversity, inclusion and equity enhances our membership, advocacy and mission. 

Therefore, we are intentional in our practices to be an organization inclusive of ethnic, racial, cultural, gender, age, religious, disability, family status, sexual orientation and socio-economic diversity in all areas from membership to hiring.
