From Jan. 21st-22nd, the Vermont Workers’ Center held our 2023 Winter Leadership Retreat, where members of our leadership bodies and statewide teams planned the next phase of the Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign.

Fifteen years ago, in the midst of the 2008 Financial Crisis, we launched the Campaign with the goal of “build[ing] a statewide action network capable of winning and building a real democracy, where we are organized enough and strong enough to make all policymakers do what is right.”

Today, that mission is even more important as the state prepares to strip Medicaid from an estimated 29,000 people in Vermont beginning on April 1st.
