Organize Local Industry Coalitions
All Together Now PA organizes projects in each of our priority areas — Industrial Hemp, Renewable Energy, Local Food, Zero Waste, Plant Medicine, and Local Culture and Tourism— that support local business ownership, build community wealth and increase local self-reliance in basic needs. We increase the supply by catalyzing local supply chains from farm to shelf and start social enterprises to fill the gap in a supply chain. We increase the demand by educating and inspiring the public and local businesses and institutions to buy local.
All Together Now PA meets with state and local legislators to advocate for policies that support our vision for building sustainable, self-reliant regional economies, empowering communities, protecting our eco-systems, and curbing the power and influence of large corporations. Each industry coalition provides information and connections to stakeholders in their area of expertise.
Educate, Celebrate and Unite
All Together Now works with like-minded local groups across Pennsylvania to hold educational, community-building events that unite our rural and urban communities, celebrate local culture and provide information about building resilient, self-reliant regional economies that mitigate carbons and prepare for climate change. We believe that local self-reliance is the meeting place of the left and the right.
All Together Now PA encourages investments in locally owned businesses that strengthen local supply chains and build regional self-reliance. Working with partner organizations, we connect investors with local businesses. All Together Now believes that investing locally provides not only a financial return, but a living return – the benefit of living in a more sustainable, self-reliant, resilient and prosperous community.
Lead a "Revolution of Values"
In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr called for a “Revolution of Values” to address the scourge of materialism in our society. The time for that revolution is now!
All Together Now is helping to lead a Revolution of Values that will transition our society to one that values life over money by building a Caring Economy where business owners, investors, and consumers make economic decisions, not to maximize profits and material gain, but to maximize the health and well-being of our communities and eco-systems, while receiving a fair return. We seek to demonstrate business relationships based on cooperation, partnership, generosity, fairness, integrity, compassion, and respect for all people, nature, and other species.
