“How are you transforming the way your community works with money?”
That was one of the questions we asked the five recipients of the RSF Community Capital Scholarship to attend the 10th Annual Business Alliance for Local Living Economies Conference. This year’s BALLE Conference was in Grand Rapids, Michigan. RSFers Melinda Cheel and Jillian McCoy sat down with these folks –hailing from Alberta, New Orleans, Spokane and places in between — to hear more. Check out the video playlist here to hear from grassroots leaders working creatively with capital to transform their communities. Fun fact: one of these scholarship recipients was just elected mayor!
