Hello friends and supporters of Justice for All!
It is a new year and we are gearing up for a full agenda of important events and actions around the state. To begin, Justice For All is thrilled to be participating in Saturday’s Women’s March on Montpelier. As both a national and local event, this action on January 21st is a vital declaration that we as citizens are going to raise a unified voice and stand up for what is right in our communities.
We at Justice For All are proud to be a part of this movement and we need your help! If you are interested in marching with a group of folks from JFA, plan to meet us at Montpelier High School at 12:45pm. We are also looking for volunteers to join us in canvassing and circulating petitions on the March and at the statehouse.
Additionally, Justice for All will have an information table set up at the Christ Episcopal Church from noon to 4:00. We are also looking for people to (wo)man this table to help share our mission, get the word out on racial justice work in Vermont, and get some signatures on those petitions!
To let us know how you would like to get involved call Erin at 272-8392 or send her an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, Justice For All gathers for a monthly meeting in Montpelier from 6:00 till 8:00 PM on Thursday, January 26th. Major agenda items will include community outreach planning and a discussion on the Racial Justice Reform Omnibus Bill. Attorney General, T.J. Donavan and Washington County States Attorney Scott Williams have been invited. Light refreshments and childcare included. Please coordinate childcare in advance. The location will be announced shortly.
As you consider where you are investing in social justice issues, remember the racial referendum that we just experienced in our national election. Consider donating to Justice For All, an organically grown, Vermont-based racial justice organization that has been here doing the work over the past couple of years.
Over this past year we worked in a coalition to successfully deliver the Vermont Fair and Impartial Policing Policy for all law enforcement agencies in the state. Our work continues with numerous community outreach activities, Vermont Justice Coalition, Coalition on Racial Justice Reform, the Law Enforcement Professional Regulation Committee and much more but we need your help to continue.
#DecisionPoints is a open source data collection initiative that is underway. This open platform will provide the community access to our data and enable transparency and accountability. Help us with this effort.
Thanks for the outpouring of support.
