This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Institute for Local Self Reliance. Since its founding, ILSR has championed local approaches to economics, community, and democratic participation. Through research, education and advocacy, the Institute has promoted independent locally owned businesses, renewable energy, community banking, community broadband and much more. Linking all of its work is a stubborn insistence on another old and too often overlooked principle: the common good.

I can think of no other citizen's group whose work and witness during these four decades has done more to spark the courage, clarity and conviction needed to save our social contract from the behemoths and bullies who would shred it.

Co-founder and ILSR guiding spirit David Morris will join TruthtoTell to discuss the continued relevance of local self-reliance, as both ideal and practical approach to building a 21st century democracy.
