Since 2015, Rights & Democracy, along with our sister organization the Rights & Democracy Institute, have worked to create a leadership development and member organizing model for rural communities that can sustain their capacity for collective action. We have put these models into place by building regional chapters led by trained and tested local leaders with a contributing membership base that can sustain a regional organizer. This rural organizing model is crucial to building a sustainable, grassroots political infrastructure that does not rely on the ebb and flow of grant funding.
By strengthening our existing chapters and expanding our chapter organizing in New Hampshire and Vermont, we will create more opportunities for local leadership development. This will support and enable local leaders to take ownership of RAD’s foundational issue work, applying these progressive approaches to their own communities making them more livable and sustainable.
You can get involved today by joining one of the Vermont Regional Chapters listed below. Just reach out to the staff person connected to that Chapter. Don’t see your region listed? Contact Dan
