  • VT Poor People's Campaign

    On Saturday, March 2, 2024, the Vermont Poor People’s Campaign will hold a rally and march in Montpelier, VT. This event is part of a nationwide day of action. 

    Click on the link to learn more about the Poor People’s Campaign


    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.

  • March: Every Can Counts!

    Every Can Counts! Your Board of Mission and Social Concerns invites you to join us in collecting food for HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty's Effects) on our March Sundays. We set a lofty goal of 3 tons of food collected by the end of the year. As of now we are close to 600 pounds-a wonderful start. If it's easier to make a cash donation we can do the shopping for you (by check, please specify HOPE). We're so heartened by the generous outpouring of our church community, and if it seems like were asking for food more frequently, it's because we are! We've set a big goal to meet a big need. As always, thank you!
