Do you ever wish that our community understood the real value of local, independent businesses? What if you were connected to a network of local businesses that worked with you to strengthen your successes? Imagine an organization that not only focused on local business rights, but also effectively promoted a “local first” ethic amongst the community. Dream no longer, for it has begun!
The Progressive Local Alliance for Community Enrichment is here to empower the Ourlando community to co-create a vibrant and sustainable local living economy through authentic creative culture, social equity and environmental harmony.
We know that it is you that keeps Orlando unique, prosperous and diverse. Many people are unaware of the struggles that local businesses are experiencing and this continued detachment will lead to a boring and economically challenged city of mega-marts and urban sprawl.
We must reclaim Ourlando and create a thoughtful and exciting “think local first” campaign that unites all of our amazing, indie businesses, artists and musicians through local events, a web directory, group advertising, local media exposure and much more. This model has been proven in 100′s of great cities like Portland, Austin, and Boston to name a few (read about one below).
Join us in the effort to preserve and grow our local independent community!
