Bob Harnish recently succeeded in having Pittsford pass a resolution condemning racism and welcoming all persons regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity or expression, age or disability and will protect those classes to the fullest extent of the law. Read the resolution here.
Encourage your town Select Board to pass a similar resolution. This could encourage conversations that need to be happening more often. It could also be a way for your town to become more organized in electing legislators who will represent our values.
Want some help? Email us RutlandCountyDemocratsVT@gmail.com and we’ll connect you with other people in your town who are interested in working on this project.
With Rutland County Republican legislators like Rep. Art Peterson and Rutland City Alderman Tom DePoy rejecting resolutions condemning the white supremacist insurrection at the Capitol, we need to start organizing now to elect officials who will represent our values.
The Vermont Democratic Party hasn’t been able to provide much support for town committees in the past. This is changing! With party re-organization quickly approaching in September and a competitive mid-term election in 2022, the Vermont Democratic Party is committed to using its resources to empower towns across Vermont!
The Vermont Democratic Party is calling their new initiative “251 in ’21,” named after the number of the towns and cities in our state.
Whether you’ve been organizing for years or you’re just getting started, please join us for the 1st meeting of 251 in ’21.
When: Tuesday February 2nd at 6:30 pm
Where: Virtual meeting
