Vermont People's Convention & Just Transition Assembly

April 30, 2016 (All day) to May 1, 2016 (All day)

On April 30th - May 1st, 2016, the Vermont Human Rights Council will bring together hundreds of people from across the state to Montpelier High School for a People's Convention & Just Transition Assembly --> building a movement in Vermont for a just transition towards local, living economies grounded in human rights and dignity. 

This convention follows in the footsteps of the first People's Convention in 2012, which brought together hundreds of people to Burlington High School for two days of popular education and the drafting of a Vermont Human Rights Declaration.
