About Local First Arizona
Local First Arizona is a nonprofit organization that celebrates independent, locally owned businesses. We support, promote, and advocate for a strong local business community and raise public awareness of the economic and cultural benefits provided by strong local economies. Local businesses contribute to a sustainable economy for Arizona and build vibrant communities we're all proud to call home.
Together with our Foundation, Local First Arizona is working to build a diversified Arizona economy that is sustainable, resilient, and celebratory of diverse cultures.
