As a follow-up to our Prop 2 presentations about abolishing slavery in the Vermont constitution, no exceptions, VIA held an initial training on Zoom about joining our campaign to pass Prop 2. We are now actively recruiting additional volunteers, and will provide training as the campaign progresses.
We will have a public launch of the campaign on the Juneteenth weekend, and start having weekly half-hour calls on Monday nights beginning on June 27th.
