We’re halfway through the 2023 Vermont State Legislative session. The Legislature calls this point “crossover,” since it’s the deadline for bills to cross over to the other chamber. Here’s what RAD has been fighting for this session and what we are excited to see moving!
Like so many, we are reeling from the news of the past two weeks. As a community, RAD is comprised of many people who are all too familiar with the pain and terror of gun violence and racism in our country.
Spring at Rights & Democracy has been off to a moving start. In our calls, conversations, and meetings across the state, there is a palpable sense of energy and renewal.
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.
Yesterday’s 2022 Vermont Town Meeting Day elections brought exciting results, with 85% of RAD-endorsed candidates winning their races!
January is a special month at Rights & Democracy, one full of assessment and preparation. In each state, we’re at a moment of opportunity.
All of our Vermont youth deserve culturally responsive and fact-based curricula, equitable access to educational resources, and a safe and supportive school environment.
