Celebrating Essex wins and JCE campaign advances!


As we enter mid-April, we are enjoying the first blooms of spring and celebrating recent wins in the work for a just Vermont in which we all can flourish.

To name just a couple, both of our Essex endorsed school board candidates, Laura Taylor and Marlon Verasamy, won their races by a wide margin last Tuesday, and Burlington’s Just Cause Eviction charter change has made it all the way to the Governor’s desk!
