Black Dollar Days Task Force: Building Community Responsibility for Economic Prosperity

Programs

Buy Local Coalition

BUY LOCAL - MAKE COMMUNITY MATTER!

Each dollar we spend is a vote for the future direction of our communities. Spending at locally owned businesses keeps our dollars local to better serve community’s needs.

Black Dollar Days Task Force has launched a Buy Local Coalition, which has jointly organized a “Buy Local” week the first week of February, the Buy Local Rally, and the Buy Local Business Reception in Seattle, WA.

What it Means to Buy Local

In your neighborhood

Buy from stores that are independent, locally owned, and give back to your community. Get to know the owners and other folks who work there.

In the Seattle area

When in other neighborhoods, buy from community-based stores in those neighborhoods. Try products and meet people from cultures other than your own.

In the Puget Sound

Seek out products that originate in our area. Help create a regional economy.

In the Pacific Northwest “Cascadia”

Buy from Northwest companies whenever possible. Insist that stores carry such products.
