Let’s face it, the 2017 legislative session in Vermont lacked both a rejection of the Trump agenda and a bold vision for the state we seek to build.
We had a few successes—Racial Justice Reform, PTSD coverage for first responders, Paid Family Leave passing the House— but, we have not yet seen the bold vision for progressive change we need.
It is time to turn up the heat.
This summer, Rights & Democracy will host Town Halls throughout the state as we reclaim our political power to create real and lasting change on issues such as universal healthcare, energy democracy, economic justice, and much more.
Our kickoff event will feature a lineup of great guest speakers, including Bill McKibben, Shannon Jackson of Our Revolution, Ali Dieng, a founding RAD board member and Burlington City Council candidate, and more.
