Friends and supporters,

We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.”Over this past years we have worked with coalition partners to successfully deliver the Vermont Fair and Impartial Policing Policy, Law Enforcement Professional Regulation and the Act 54 (Racial Disparities Panel). Our work continues with numerous community outreach activities, Vermont Justice Coalition, the Racial Justice Reform Coalition and much more, but we need your help to continue.

Can you help us to continue the work of addressing systemic racism in the criminal justice system and beyond?  Here are four quick ways that you can be a part of this work:


Thanks and Happy Holidays!


Don’t forget about the The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.  Vermont’s New Poor Peoples Campaign will serve as a vehicle for us to take the people’s agenda to the statehouse.  Sign the National Pledge Card here and be on the lookout for details on the December 4th (3:30 PM) Press Conference and Viewing Party of the Poor People’s Campaign National Launch: A National Call for Moral Revival in Washington, DC (hold the date).
