Upcoming Education Justice Events & Happenings

Let’s work to get police out of schools!

This community forum will discuss how to replace police in your school with systems that support and uplift all students. The panel will include educator, parent, and school board perspectives – plus we’ll have time for Q&A. This is the second of a two-part series.
This event is co-hosted by Vermont Legal Aid, Outright Vermont, ACLU Vermont, Rights and Democracy, the Vermont Human Rights Commission, and Vermont Coalition for Ethnic and Social Equity in Schools.

Get involved in Coalition Work!

We are excited to share our Goals & Activities for the year and are actively seeking folks to get involved in making this work happen! For now we are prioritizing working with new Coalition Members who identify with the BIPOC, LGBTQI, indigenous and disability communities in VT. Please email vtethnicstudies@gmail.com if you’d like to set up a one-on-one and learn where you can plug in! We encourage our allies to get involved locally and come out to our events.

Come out and Support Migrant Justice Oct 3rd

This Saturday, October 3rd, Migrant Justice and the Milk with Dignity Standards Council will release a report documenting the first two years of the Milk with Dignity Program. Covering hundreds of dairy workers, the program is achieving unprecedented transformations on dairy farms throughout Vermont and New York. We are excited to share a detailed report of these accomplishments.

October 3rd will mark three years since Ben & Jerry’s became the first company to join the Milk with Dignity Program and a full year since we first publicly called on supermarket chain Hannaford to follow suit. This Saturday we are organizing delegations to Hannaford stores around the region to deliver the Milk with Dignity report to store managers. You can sign up here!
