Rights & Bites: Fall event series

You’re invited! We’re hosting a series of events across Vermont this fall in Burlington, Rutland, White River Junction, Brattleboro, and Montpelier called Rights & Bites.

During each Rights & Bites event, attendees will mingle with other ACLU supporters, meet ACLU-VT staff members, and hear about our upcoming work. Light food & refreshments will be provided, and a cash bar will be available at most of the events.

At each event, all attendees will be entered into a raffle for a limited-edition ACLU of Vermont door prize. And, everyone will leave with ACLU giveaways. Be sure to RSVP so that you receive event updates and we have an accurate attendee count.

These are a community-oriented events, and we ask that all attendees be mindful of the risk of spreading COVID-19 and other illnesses. Members of your community may be especially at-risk for serious illness. If you feel unwell, please stay home—we will have other opportunities to connect in the future. Note that masks and hand sanitizer will be made available at each event. 

If you have any questions, please email Jess Venable-Novak at [email protected].
