Keep the Resilient Local Economy Movement Thriving!


AMIBA helps local groups implement programs that nurture entrepreneurship, prevent the displacement of local independent businesses, and build more prosperous and durable local economies. Your gift to AMIBA advances long-term systemic change by creating a national grassroots counterforce to the threats facing local economies everywhere – from unfair competition, national competitors or uninformed policy and consumer behavior.

Our Mission

The mission of AMIBA is to build a strong local economy movement by supporting the growth and development of local business alliances and networks that are committed to the following objectives:

  • Supporting local independent businesses in growing and thriving
  • Building a strong local economy that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable
  • Working to mitigate climate change and adapt to the damage brought on by global warming

The Value of AMIBA

AMIBA is the only national organization of local and independent businesses with the purpose of creating a strong economy that is local, sustainable, and equitable. AMIBA has a long history of founding and supporting local business alliances and our value proposition is manifested in the work of our Board, staff, affiliated alliances, and our partners.
