Strengthening Communities Community wealth building is a fast-growing economic development movement that strengthens communities through broader democratic ownership and control of business and jobs. It builds on local talents, capacities and institutions, rebuilding capital to strengthen and create locally owned family and community owned businesses that are anchored in place, that aren’t moving.
COST: $15 per person
