Join the Rutland County Democrats in supporting inclusion!

Please join us for our next meeting on June 14th as we discuss our work to elect candidates who represent our values and to build the kind of future that we want to live in. Part of this effort includes standing up for our most vulnerable neighbors. That’s why we’re so excited by the work that’s being done to pass a Declaration of Inclusion in every town in Rutland County. You’ve probably already heard about this, an effort that’s already making national news!
We encourage every town to adopt their own resolution. To read more about the declaration and to find talking points, you can go here. If you would like to work on this in your town, but you aren’t sure how to get started, email us and we’ll put you in touch with people who can help.
Join us in passing our own Declaration of Inclusion!

And let us know what you think of our draft Declaration of Inclusion, modeled on the declaration that’s being passed across Rutland County:
The Rutland County Democratic Committee condemns racism and discrimination of any type and welcomes all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or disability, and will protect these classes to the fullest extent of the law.
As a committee, we formally condemn discrimination in all its forms and commit to fair and equal treatment of everyone in our community.
The Rutland County Democratic Committee is committed to providing a space where the most marginalized can feel safe.
Hope to “see” you on June 14!
