Keep Calm and Wash On!

As COVID-19 spreads and continues to impact communities around the globe, Vermont Interfaith Action is joining national faith and community leaders with Faith in Action in calling for proactive measures to protect people most at risk during this devastating public health crisis, including the poor, the elderly, individuals with existing health conditions, and those facing homelessness, incarceration, or detention.

Following the recommendations of public health officials across the country, VIA is acting quickly to implement social distancing policies and assessing the impact on the organizing work that is central to its mission to create a world where everyone belongs, thrives and has agency over their own lives.

VIA is taking the following measures:

 

  • staff will mostly work from home and we will disinfect the office on Pearl St.
  • all of our organizing meetings/events will move to online/conference call platforms for the foreseeable future 
  • our work will temporarily slow down

Every Crisis is an Opportunity

  The current crisis we find ourselves in highlights many of the issues we have been diligently fighting for -- affordable housing, especially for those who are currently un-housed, paid family and medical leave, and food security, among others.


During this time, let us check in on our neighbors and those we love while also keeping ourselves and immediate family safe. And let us remember that our faith traditions speak to periods of rest, where we slow down and breathe....may this be a time when we do just that.
