Transforming People and Communities
Learn how long-standing discrimination in housing and land ownership has impacted generational wealth for people of color
Executive Director Debbie Ingram is making presentations on this topic six times, in five of our congregations. Our hope is that folks who attend will take action with members of the multi-congregation VIA Local Organizing Ministry to press for the passage of certain pieces of legislation in Vermont beginning in January.

Help us press the Governor and his administration to come up with a comprehensive, long-term plan to house all Vermonters who need it.
Over the past 20 months, we have shown that as a state we are more than capable of housing those who do not currently have the resources to house themselves. Yet the Scott administration, even with Federal funds available, has not to date designed and implemented a safe, cohesive plan to ensure that shelter is available for all during the cold winter months, and until more affordable housing can be built.
Join us in our campaign. View the Clergy Sign-On letter here. Come to our Press Conference on Monday, November 15 at 11 am at Christ Episcopal Church in Montpelier or at Centre Congregational Church in Brattleboro to express your support.
