The Local Currency Council serves as an advocacy group dedicated to preserving the fundamentals rights of self-governing local-economic systems. We provide a communication platform for developers and supporters of local currency systems.
Local currencies help to ensure a community’s survival economically and socially. Often created in the face of financial crisis, these currencies have served as a lifeline to their communities. In our current global financial climate, success of a local currency system may mean the difference between strife and survival.
Exchange is one of mankind’s most basic and demonstrated rights. LCC believes local currencies are an established basic right and basic need, preceding state, federal, and global controls. In a balanced scenario your local currency would interact with national and global currencies, but also stand on it’s own, weathering the changing conditions outside it’s local sphere. The LCC has been established as a private member association, a peer-to-peer private-contract forum.
To further the communication, cooperation, and fellowship of the various currencies, the LCC has been formed to assist in bringing these community voices into a common platform from which we can stand strong and help other communities, as well as our own, to further embrace and flourish in their own self-worth and commerce.
Please join us and let your voice be heard.
