People First Initiatives

PFE hosts a number of community-wide initiatives that bring people together to celebrate local ownership. While these aren’t individual programs, these different campaigns give our community something to rally around throughout the year!

Move Your Money!

Move Your Money puts the focus on the interconnectivity of local banking benefits and banking practices as a sustainability initiative that benefits a circular, place-based economy. A full picture of the initiative can be found at peoplefirsteconomy.org/mym

Independence Week

Leading up to the Independence Day holiday, we help highlight the local businesses that are celebrating through our unique promotional campaign!

Nourish Our Community

Nourish Our Community highlights ideas, resources, and partners that help build a stronger food system. We believe that nourishing our community means providing the ingredients necessary for growth, health, and equity within the food economy so that the environment, businesses, and local communities thrive.

Gift Local, Gift Good

The holidays can be a whirlwind for all of us. But family and friends always appreciate gifts that come from their neighborhood shops. During this time of year, we shine an even brighter light on our local businesses. Several of our members will have sales, incentives, and other activities. Keep your eyes on our member directory, blog, and social media for updates!
