The Main Street Alliance

The second WordPress website I built was in 2008 for a new organizing project known as The Main Street Alliance. It is a national network of small business groups organizing around issues like health care, living wages, and paid sick days.

As The Main Street Alliance’s network grew, so did their website needs. In 2011 I built my first set of parent-child themes and used a multi-site installation of WordPress that resulted in a network of interrelated, yet independent, websites for:

  • The Main Street Alliance
  • Idaho Main Street Alliance
  • Montana Small Business Alliance
  • New Jersey Main Street Alliance
  • Main Street Alliance of Oregon
  • Main Street Alliance of Washington

The Main Street Alliance’s national website featured my work until mid-2014. Many of state chapters use the theme I built for them still.
