About LSSC and Our Team The Local Solutions Support Center (LSSC) is a national hub focused on the misuse of state preemption, documenting its consequences - particularly on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ people, women, immigrants, and working people - and devising counter-strategies to affirm and strengthen local democracy to advance equity. We believe that our democracy should work for all people. A healthy democracy should allow historically excluded people to build power and exercise agency over their own lives and communities. State preemption of local policymaking - a higher level of government stripping authority from a lower level of government - should only be used to protect the health and well-being of residents and should create the foundation upon which localities can go further in advancing equity and addressing their communities' needs. Unfortunately, preemption today is being abused to undermine a healthy democracy and harm marginalized communities. Building a more just society means that every community should have the authority to advance equitable policies and decide how to most urgently meet the needs of their residents. LSSC is committed to supporting this work by both sharing best practices and supporting locally-led strategies that center local expertise and lived experience. You can read more about LSSC's vision, values, and strategic priorities . Home rule, which does not exist in every state or for every kind of local government, sets the legal terms on which local governments make policy and resist state interference. Increasing abuse of state preemption has created demand for reform to the basic legal structures of home rule that empower that abuse. To meet this imperative, LSSC has been working with national, state, and local partners to build the case for home rule law reform and provide support for advocates and officials seeking to make change in this sphere, helping stakeholders align on shared goals, and craft and execute effective strategies. As LSSC looks ahead to the remainder of 2022 and the next several years, we intend to support our growing team with the addition of a contract Home Rule Reform Campaign Consultant to start as in early September 2022.
