VBSR, Seventh Generation, SunCommon, and VPIRG have partnered to deliver a powerful message to Vermont legislators in support of bold climate action. Join us for a day of lobbying, learning, and connection in Montpelier on Thursday, February 1st.

Climate change affects not just our planet, but its people – including disproportionate impacts on low-income, global-majority, and other marginalized communities – and economic prosperity. The future of our climate is the future of our economy.

If you want to make a difference, bringing your voice to the Statehouse is one of the most impactful actions you can take. Please consider joining one or more of these activities!
