We believe rights and democracy are won when people come together to make their voices heard, so we’re building a strong movement and the people power necessary to win justice and improve the policies that affect us and our communities. From making sure that every worker earns a livable wage, to securing access to quality healthcare and education for all, we are active in a broad range of issues that people face every day.
It’s evident that low-income and working families are not being represented by our elected officials. People across Vermont and New Hampshire formed Rights & Democracy to build a movement to counter the influence of money in politics and to hold elected officials accountable to upholding our rights and the democracy we live in.
Our members are young and old. They are families, single people, retirees. They are working people who come from communities all across the state. Together, we create change through grassroots organizing, educating and mobilizing around the issues that affect our communities, recruiting and training candidates to run for office, and working through the political and electoral process to advance progressive policies that lead to happy, healthy, and just communities for all Vermonters.
