I support a Vermont where:
Every working person earns a livable wage and has dignified working conditions.
Everyone has access to quality healthcare, education, affordable housing and social supports paid for with a progressive and fair tax system.
We have an economy that creates good jobs while taking bold action to protect the environment and address climate change.

We support raising basic standards for workers in Vermont, and call on lawmakers to:
Right now millions of people in Vermont and across the country are struggling with poverty wages, lack of paid family and medical leave to care for their families, experience wage theft or our misclassified as independent contractors, or become ill or injured at work because of dangerous working conditions.
Rights & Democracy believes that everyone has the right to live and raise their families in dignity. In the coming years, we believe Vermont can increasingly become a national leader for raising workplace standards.
Please join us in helping continue to raise the standards for working people and supporting this campaign!

Add your name: Vermont Stands Up Against Hate and Welcomes Syrian Refugees
As President-elect Trump threatens to ban Syrian refugees, we in Vermont are trying to welcome them. In the face of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria, on November 28, 2016 the Burlington City Council overwhelming passed a resolution supporting refugee resettlement. This resolution follows the lead of Rutland City, which already agreed to open its doors to 100 families earlier this year. We agree with US Senator Bernie Sanders’ statement that when hundreds of thousands of people have lost everything and are merely trying to protect and preserve a future for their families, we should not turn our backs on them.
