Buffalo First used localism to fix a broken economy—they focused on strengthening the locally-owned businesses that made Buffalo great in the first place. They launched a “Think Local First” campaign encouraging people to grow and buy local produce, to support local independent businesses and artisans, and to seek out socially responsible businesses.
