Join us for our 53rd (Virtual) Annual Meeting!
For one hundred years, the ACLU has worked to advance and defend civil liberties. Whether in the streets, the statehouse, or the courts, year after year we have met attacks on our constitutional rights with determination and a strong belief that "We the People" means all of us.
Despite these successes, 2020 has proved to be one of the most challenging and trying times for our nation. From a global pandemic to the murder of George Floyd (and many Black people before and since him) to the shattering revelation that Breonna Taylor would not get the justice she deserved to the devastating loss of Justice Ruth Bader Gingsburg, who started the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU, this year has proved that the fight -- for racial justice, immigrants' rights, women's rights, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, prisoners' rights, disability rights, and so much much -- is never over.
This year's Annual Meeting will be a virtual space for us to come together following an election many believe will be one of the most important in the history of our country. We will:
- Discuss the implications of this pivotal election for our civil liberties and our democracy, in Vermont and nationwide;
- Share how the ACLU is responding, this year and beyond;
- Celebrate victories in our Smart Justice Campaign, as well as advancing racial justice, immigrants' rights, police accountability, and more;
- Honor the life and legacy of the ACLU's most celebrated alumnus, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
HELP HONOR RBG
The ACLU of Vermont is inviting all admirers of Justice Ginsburg to submit a short written statement honoring her life and work and/or share how you've been impacted by her life and legacy. We will then highlight the impact RBG has had on the lives of Vermonters during the annual meeting.
Please email your statement to [email protected] by November 1st.
All current ACLU members are eligible to vote for new Board members prior to the meeting. Voting will remain open until November 18th. If you are a current ACLU member, please go here to learn more about the slate of Board members and vote.
If you would like to request a paper ballot, please email [email protected] or call 802-223-6304.
Together, we will continue to fight for our rights and work to realize the promise of our Constitution that "We the People" means all of us. We look forward to seeing you there.
