Mission Statement

Keep Louisville Weird is a campaign of the Louisville Independent Business Alliance. LIBA's mission is to preserve the unique community character of the Metro Louisville area by promoting locally-owned businesses and to educate citizens on the value of purchasing locally.

Description

LIBA focuses on:

  • Informing citizens of the value provided by locally-owned businesses, including their importance to the local economy, culture, and social fabric. The goal is to encourage area residents to view themselves as citizens -- as members of a community rather than merely as consumers.
  • Offering group branding, promotion and advertising to LIBA members to elevate the individual and collective profiles of locally-owned businesses in order to provide marketing and exposure advantages chains routinely enjoy.
  • Creating strong relationships with local government and media in order to inform local decision-making and give voice to the locally-owned independent business community, and to promote policies that support community-rooted enterprise.

LIBA is also responsible for the Buy Local First and 'keep Louisville weird' campaigns, publishing the Buy Local Guide twice a year, the Buy Local Fair (May), Louisville Brewfest (October) and hoLOUdays Contest (December).
