Who: Vermont Racial Justice Alliance Leaders and Partners

This year, the Vermont Racial Justice Alliance is building its advocacy around three main tenets, known as A.C.T. 

  • Acknowledging and reconciling historic systems of racism
  • Creating new structures for American Descendents of Slavery (ADOS) economic and cultural empowerment
  • Transforming state systems to better serve ADOS Vermonters.

A.C.T. will enable policy makers to prioritize ADOS wellness and empowerment and enable their ability to thrive.

Speakers from the Vermont Racial Justice Alliance will call for a statewide declaration that racism is a public health emergency, and a moral budget that centers ADOS in Vermont. Hundreds of supporters and community members are expected to attend, including elected officials President Pro Tem Becca Balint and House Speaker Jill Krowinski.
