Can you believe that the legislative year is over? What a year it has been! We thank you for your testimonies, for the numerous opinion letters written to local newspapers, and for signing up to support and oppose so many priority bills. That is true people power!

This 2022 election season, we are fired up! The end of the Vermont legislative session re-grounded us in the importance of continuing to build movement power
This morning, the Vermont House failed to override Governor Scott’s recent veto of Burlington’s proposed Just Cause Eviction charter change by just one vote. We at Rights & Democracy are deeply disappointed by and angry about this loss for tenants, especially low-income and BIPOC residents who are most impacted by housing injustice, during a time in which secure housing is in short supply and rents are spiking.
A bill that would have enabled the distribution of $100 million in federal funds to increase the availability of affordable housing in New Hampshire recently stalled in the House. Rights & Democracy’s Housing for All Committee responds to the impact this will have in our ongoing fight to ensure all Granite State residents have safe and secure housing:
Last week was full of movement and community, and we are entering Monday with our energy high. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than calling on elected leaders to take action now for a livable planet for us all?
Last week, we were happy to see more positive outcomes for RAD priority bills! These included a Senate vote to pass TWO RAD-supported bills related to healthcare and criminal justice reform.
Thank you for taking the time each week to contact committee members and your legislators. By doing your part, you are making a real difference for housing, healthcare, racial justice, and more in the Granite State.
Yesterday’s 2022 Vermont Town Meeting Day elections brought exciting results, with 85% of RAD-endorsed candidates winning their races!
With Vermont’s 2022 Town Meeting Day fast approaching, we are excited to introduce you to the full slate of local candidates we are endorsing ahead of the March 1st elections!
Each election season, we announce a first slate of early endorsed candidates who share our vision and values and are proven champions of our principles and key priorities — and we are thrilled to introduce you to this year’s slate today!
Thank you to everyone who supported online, through letters or in person last week when the House heard testimony on key bills to repeal divisive concepts. You can read about the hearing here. They did not vote on a recommendation for these bills yet so you can still write to the House Education committee and demand they support HB 1090 and HB 1576.
This past week was quite a week, with Legislative committees hearing testimony on priority bills around divisive concepts, school vouchers, housing justice, and abortion bans. Thank you to everyone who came out to make their voices heard. We are still waiting on the committees to issue vote recommendations.
Following the start of the New Hampshire legislative session, this is our first weekly legislative update of 2022. With last year’s assaults on public education, reproductive rights, racial justice and more, we are preparing for some challenging fights ahead, and we can’t do it without you!
