The Trump Administration, Congress and the special interests in D.C. are rolling back important protections aimed at keeping our environment clean and our people healthy. They’ve rejected science and set new lows in the areas of government transparency and corruption. But Vermonters don’t back down when our rights, health, environment and future are being threatened. There are things we can do, right here in Vermont, to hold the line and show that a different way is possible We are fighting back:

    Let’s put our ambitious clean energy goals into state law, establish strong efficiency standards and make fossil fuel companies pay for their pollution.
  • Toxics & Drinking Water

  • Government Reform
    Let’s foster a transparent, open and trustworthy government by putting an end to ‘pay-to-play’ politics, banning corporate campaign contributions and requiring statewide and presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns.
