Communities in Vermont, like communities around the world, are suffering from economic inequality, ecological disaster, and the violence and hatred of racism, sexism, homophobia and ableism. Year after year we face cuts to critical services we depend on, fewer good jobs, a worsening healthcare crisis and disruptive weather patterns.
We know these problems are systemic, and share common roots.
We need to build a different road - towards an economy that serves people and the planet instead of profit, towards being stewards of the Earth’s resources, and towards a society that allows us to explore new ways of practicing democracy, honoring our differences while sharing common values and principles.
The Vermont People’s Convention and Just Transition Assembly will bring hundreds of people together to imagine solutions and take action for fundamental, systemic change.
Join us at Montpelier High School on Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1st!
The Vermont People’s Convention is being organized by the Vermont Human Rights Council, an alliance of grassroots community and labor organizations in Vermont, and by Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, a national alliance of grassroots groups organizing to build an agenda for power for working and poor people and communities of color.
Members of the Vermont Human Rights Council include 350VT, Green Mountain Self Advocates, Migrant Justice, Rising Tide VT, UE Local 203, @Vermont Center for Independent Living, Vermont Interfaith Action, and the Vermont Workers’ Center.
