JOIN A (VIRTUAL) ACTION TEAM

Our Action Teams are where our most passionate and motivated supporters gather, learn, share, plan legislative actions and organize events. They are the fuel for our movement. And just because we live in a virtual world right now, doesn’t mean we can’t continue to be rock-star advocates!

Join your local Action team to help create positive change and ensure Vermont supports and values children, early educators, and working families for what they are—the heart of our society and the backbone of our economy.
