The Truth about the Budget Cuts: Defend Jobs, Rights, Services and the Environment!

April 20, 2015 - 7:00pm

Burlington City Hall, Contois Auditorium 

Join us for a panel discussion of Governor Shumlin’s budget cuts and how they will devastate workers, our services, and environment. Unionists and community activists will also discuss how we can organize for a state that puts people and the environment first! This panel comes on the heels of an incredibly successful protest against the current austerity proposals this past Saturday, April 11th in Montpelier, where nearly 500 Vermonters took to the State Capitol. 

Featured Speakers:

Many of us in Vermont are struggling to make ends meet, as good jobs are lost and the cost of fundamental human needs like food, fuel, housing and healthcare continues to rise. At the same time, the climate impacts of our fossil-fueled economy are hitting home, with poor and working-class people feeling the brunt of extreme weather like Tropical Storm Irene.
