VT People's Platform

83 signatures

At two major Labor Day 2017 rallies with Bernie Sanders and local RAD leaders in White River Junction and Middlebury, we rolled out our People’s Platform that offers a bold agenda to improve the lives of all Vermonters and all communities. That platform includes:

  • Fair Pay: Raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour (H. 93, S. 40) 

  • Healthcare Justice: Implement an equitably and publicly financed system of health care as a human right for all as envisioned in Act 48, Vermont's 2011 health care law, and pass Universal Primary Care (H.248 and S.53)

  • Protect Workers and families: Enact paid family and medical leave (H. 196 and S. 82) and strengthen enforcement against worker misclassification (S. 73)

  • Decarcerate Vermont: Support reforms to our criminal justice system to end systemic racial bias and enable a humane approach to justice (H.150H.167H.108H.291)

  • Racial Justice: Ensure the recommendations of the newly created Racial Justice Oversight Board are followed in order to address implicit racial bias in our criminal justice system and other state institutions in Vermont.

  • Gender Justice: Protect women's right to control their own bodies and destinies, advance gender pay equity, and advance more equitable public accomodations for transgender people in Vermont. (H. 333)

  • Clean water, clean air, and clean soils for all - Invest in the infrastructure and protections necessary to ensure these key human and environmental rights

  • Energy Democracy: Empower communities to move toward a 100-percent renewable energy economy while prioritizing opportunities for local ownership and democratic participation in shaping our just transition away from fossil fuels.

  • Clean Elections: Stop the bribery by closing the revolving door between elected office and lobbying. Give every voter a voice by empowering voters to rank their top candidates to avoid “spoiler candidates”; and fix our broken public campaign finance system.

    We deserve the People’s Platform and we will need a People’s Party to get it.

    We need to:


    Overturn Citizens United and silence climate change denials.


    Make education of the electorate and voter registration important goals.


    Stand behind unions that support American workers rights.


    Combat the racial hatred of many of our fellow citizens.


    Unite the political factions that have splintered our opposition to dark money.


    This latter goal will preserve democracy and protect our citizens.
