Our annual statewide convention was held on Friday, August 16th in Randolph.

Alvin Herring, the Executive Director of our national network, Faith in Action. To download a summary and see some video of the event, use this link.
Not too long ago, a $15 minimum wage seemed “radical” and “unrealistic.” But people all over this country, including right here in VT, are standing up and saying that it is not a radical idea to say a full-time job should lift you out of poverty, not keep you in it. Five states and the District of Columbia have already passed a $15 minimum wage. Sen. Sanders hopes VT will soon join them. Unitarian Church of Montpelier leader, Elaine, shares her story about the need for VT to have livable wages.
