Put People First Legislative Agenda

Sarah Launderville, director of the Vermont Center for Independent Living & Darya Marchenkova of the Vermont Workers Center discuss the Put People First Movement's unified agenda. A unified, diverse, and growing movement of organizations called Put People First believes Vermont can and must protect and fulfill the human rights of all its people, while ensuring a healthy and livable environment. The Put People First Agenda puts forth a plan for holding Vermont accountable to its obligation to fulfill the people's human rights by taking action on universal healthcare, dignified work and the right to organize, freedom of movement and access to transportation, inclusion of people with disabilities, the right to a healthy environment and livable planet for all, and a budgeting process that puts people, not money, at its center.
