Click to view this videoMany people in Vermont are struggling to meet their fundamental needs and fulfill their human rights, such as housing, healthcare, education, livable wages, and paid sick days. Over the past year, we have seen these needs and rights come under attack. Decisions are being made that will affect our lives for years to come, and we aren’t given a seat at the table.

This May 1st, come out to Montpelier to take part in a Health & Dignity March and day of action. On this day, we will continue to build a movement of people organizing for human rights and real democracy for all people in Vermont. May 1st is a celebration of our families, our communities, and our strength as a people’s movement. 

This event is family-friendly, and will include music, art, kid friendly activities, and fun!

Assemble on the State House lawn at 12pm to begin the march.
