At "What Equity Looks like in Burlington" the State Commissioner of Human Resources told us about the hiring of the State Executive Director of Racial Equity. Over 80 folks turned out and struggled with tough questions like How do WE address equity in Burlington? What are the three most important things that WE can do? What should WE do NEXT?

We came back to discuss what WE came up with and what WE can do next. We have got to move this equity discussion to action. This is where it starts. This time we're orienting ourselves to action on community matters of equity, diversity and inclusion.

We invited some some city officials back to hear what they are doing.

The Vermont Racial Justice Alliance Meeting precedes this event at the same venue. More information here: www.facebook.com/events/369391607094177

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website: https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/Resources
