Rooted in Resilience


Rooted in Resilience (formerly Bay Localize) inspires and supports community leaders in building equitable, resilient communities. We confront the challenges of climate instability, rising energy costs, and recession by boosting regional capacity to provide for everyone’s needs, sustainably and equitably. We achieve this by equipping local leaders with flexible tools, models, and policies that strengthen their communities.

Empowering Communities, Growing Leaders

The time is now! Grassroots leaders like you are the key to neighborhoods thriving through economic downturn and climate change. We’re building on the momentum of the in-depth community workshops we facilitated in 2010, which reached over 270 participants. Participants included local government commissioners, community organizers, youth leaders, and green job trainees — we all have the potential to step up as grassroots leaders!
