Organizers write, “If you believe in a living wage, universal access to healthcare, immediate action on climate change, upholding and strengthening voter rights, and challenging the war economy, then join us on Saturday, March 2nd 2024, as Vermont joins 30+ states for this nationwide, simultaneous day of mass action: Mass Poor and Low Wage-Workers' Statehouse Assemblies and to the Polls! Arrive at 10am to the Montpelier Transit Center (Taylor Street between Rte 2 and State St), march to the statehouse at 10:30am, and assembly at the Statehouse at 11am. We will be joining with thousands of others: poor and low-wealth people, people of faith, advocates, organizations, and more, in one coalition, calling on our state and federal governments to address the interlocking injustices of poverty, racism, the war economy, ecological devastation, and the distorted moral narrative of christian nationalism. We cannot address poverty without addressing ecological devastation, nor can we address systemic racism without addressing the war economy, and so on. It goes hand in hand, and the time to act is now.”
Tara Affolter will meet church members in Montpelier at the transit center in Montpelier and we can march to the statehouse together. If walking to the capitol is not available to you, reach out to Tara as there are other accessibility options available.
