We are excited to announce that Justice for All has endorsed Debbie Ingram for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor. During her time in the State Senate, Debbie has distinguished herself as the clear leader on issues of social justice. We are excited about the opportunities that an Ingram Lieutenant Governorship would offer in fighting for racial justice.
Debbie was the lead sponsor on legislation that clarified the prohibition of slavery in the Vermont constitution and permanently changed Columbus Day to Indigenous peoples’ day. Debbie has also led the charge on beginning to collect data to help us continue fighting systemic racism.
Debbie is a compassionate leader and listener who will be able to use the office of Lieutenant Governor to enact real change in Vermont. We are excited about the conversations that Debbie will be able to initiate around the state as Lieutenant Governor and the visionary leadership that she will be able to continue to offer in the State House.
It is a crowded race for Lieutenant Governor this year so getting out to vote is more important than ever! We need to have leaders who will prioritize racial justice. Help make sure we achieve that by voting for Debbie in the Democratic primary on August 11th or by voting early starting on June 27th. For more information on voting early visit the Secretary of State’s website (https://sos.vermont.gov/elections/voters/early-absentee-voting/).
With a crowded field for an election with historically low turnout, you have an opportunity to make a real impact on the outcome! If you’d like to volunteer for Debbie (in a social distancing manner!) please email her campaign manager Bas Phair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You can follow along with Debbie by joining her email list on her website (https://ingramvt.com/) and liking her Facebook page for updates (https://www.facebook.com/ingramforvt/).
