Join the National Coalition for Community Capital and VSECU for an evening with local economies advocate Judy Wicks, Thursday, November 8 from 6:00-7:30 pm.

An author, activist and entrepreneur, Judy will share her story and thoughts on the importance of being a Localist. In 1983, Judy founded Philadelphia’s iconic White Dog Cafe in 1983, which became a pioneer in the farm to table movement and a model in sustainable business practices. She is founder of Fair Food Philly (2000), the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (2001) and the nationwide (BALLE) Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (2001).

Learn about Judy’s continuing work to build a new economy of beautiful businesses and how all of us can contribute through our own actions as Localists. After Judy’s talk, stick around for a brief networking reception to meet representatives from NC3, VSECU, and fellow localists in the Burlington area.
