This 2022 election season, we are fired up!

The end of the Vermont legislative session reinforced the importance of continuing to build movement power at every level of government and supporting new grassroots leaders who share our commitment to just communities and a democracy that works for all of us, in running for office and winning seats.

With this in mind, we are thrilled to introduce our first slate of 24 early-endorsed candidates, including long-time RAD leader Brenda Siegel for governor! The following candidates, several of whom are previously RAD-endorsed electeds, have championed key intersecting issues facing Vermont communities, from environmental justice to housing equity and beyond.
