As we enter this week, we are excited to see the momentum continuing for Vermont Renews priority bills.

Last Wednesday, RAD joined “Lunch on the Lawn” at the State House, to say “yes” to free breakfast and lunch for all Vermont students. Thanks to our collective voices, the Universal School Meals bill, S.100, is advancing, with House Floor votes coming this week! We’re also expecting new movement on Environmental Justice bill S.148 (send your Rep an email today).

Meanwhile, the post-Earth Day action continues; catch RAD tabling at Vermont Youth Lobby’s Rally for the Planet this Friday. See more below!
