Burlington, VT

The Vermont Workers Center hosted a two-part process in this period.  In September 2015 they brought together their Human Rights Council for a People’s Convention/Just Transition Assembly planning meeting that included testing out some of the curriculum and discussing the links between the Human Rights and Just Transition frameworks.  Then in late April 2016, the VT People’s Convention/Just Transition Assembly brought together over 400 adults, youth and kids to strategize about Just Transition in Vermont, making links to migrant rights, feminism, anti-militarism and healthcare, and concluding with a May Day march.
