Weekly Email Update 10.18.21

“It’s absolutely inhumane to ask anyone to sleep in the woods or on the street in the Summer. That’s multiplied by 1,000 in the Winter….Having an address meant (I) was able to see a doctor, get the eyeglasses (I) needed, and seek treatment for post-traumatic stress. I felt respected as a human being. Along with Brenda and anyone else ... I will stay here until the governor takes action. This is not some fun thing to do.”
Josh Lisenby of Vergennes, who was exited from VT’s General Assistance Emergency Housing Program program in July, 2021*

Dear {{recipient.first_name_or_friend}} --   

     We start out this week, WeCAN friends, with a Call to Action from our very own member, Brenda Siegel. Brenda is currently sleeping on our VT Statehouse steps every night until Governor Phil Scott confirms that his administration will continue the General Assistance Emergency Housing Program that supports our unhomed neighbors across our state in various motels. Take a look below to see how you can make a difference right now in Windham County and beyond. 

Call to Action: Extend the General Assistance Emergency Housing Program
Now's the time to act to push Governor Phil Scott to fully reinstate and extend the General Assistance Emergency Housing Program to ensure our neighbors remain safely housed this winter. Advocates including RAD member leader Brenda Siegel for Vermont and Josh Lisenby are staying on the State House steps to demand real action. The group is demanding that the expanded eligibility applied during the COVID pandemic, which was set to expire Oct. 21, be extended until the end of the year, and that the state accept federal funds intended for that purpose. The advocates are asking that persons who lost program eligibility over the summer have it restored, that an 84-day limit they described as “arbitrary” be scrapped, and that the practice of offering participants $2,500 to leave the program — which Siegel characterized as “a bribe”* — also make clear that participants have the right to decline the funds and retain their eligibility. 
Join if you can, offer supplies if you can't, and call the Governor today at 802 828 3333!
Email [email protected] to find out what is needed or go to https://www.giveinkind.com/.../camp-in-for-homelessness-1 to support in any way that you can.

Join us for another in-person, outdoor meet-up! This month, we'll be meeting at Wild Carrot Farm and joined by farmers Caitlin, Jesse, and their awesome kids.
We'll share gratitudes, do a somatic grounding exercise, talk about parenting amidst the climate crisis and the COVID pandemic, learn about ways to take action with 350VT's Just Transition campaign, and end with a song.
This is a project of 350 Vermont bringing together families to talk about the tough realities of climate change and to participate in the transition to a healthier and safer world. What Joanna Macy calls the “Great Turning,” or the third revolution, is this unprecedented time where we are called to stop the destruction of our world, to build new life-sustaining practices and ways of being, and to shift our collective consciousness. We especially wish to engage young parents in this vital discussion of how we can make positive changes to protect our planet for our children's future.

Author Discussion: Imbolo Mbue on “How Beautiful We Were”
hosted by Windham County World Affairs Council and the Brattleboro Literary Festival
Sunday, October 17th, 2021, Online. 4pm.
Register for the event here: https://us02web.zoom.us/.../481.../WN_4ub2kj_VRQeAs-0XTMecmA
Please join WWAC as we team up with Brattleboro Literary Festival to host author Imbolo Mbue discussing her work of fiction, "How Beautiful We Were."
Imbolo Mbue’s powerful second novel, How Beautiful We Were is set in the fictional African village of Kosawa and tells of a people living in fear amid environmental degradation wrought by an American oil company. Pipeline spills have rendered farmlands infertile. Children are dying from drinking toxic water. Promises of cleanup and financial reparations to the villagers are made—and ignored. The country’s government, led by a brazen dictator, exists to serve its own interests. Left with few choices, the people of Kosawa decide to fight back. Their struggle will last for decades and come at a steep price.
Mbue will be in conversation with our own Clare Gillis who is the Chair for Windham World Affairs Council Board of Trustees, an international correspondent, and professor at Landmark College.
And check out more Brattleboro Literary Festival events here: https://emamo.com/event/brattleboro-literary-festival

Solidarity Fridays
Friday, October 22nd, 2021, Pliny Park (corner of High Street and Main Street, Brattleboro, VT, 05301). 5pm-6pm. Please observe Covid 19 safety protocols and social distancing. Brattleboro Coalition contact: [email protected]
You may have seen the Solidarity Friday demonstrations on the Pliny Park corner that began last Summer and continued into the Fall. In-person actions were paused due to COVID restrictions, but we continued meeting via Zoom, learning about our shared concerns and building our coalition. In the ongoing work to gain more participation in and deepen the understanding of our actions, the involved organizations wanted to explain our purpose for Solidarity Fridays in preparation for starting again. 
Four Brattleboro-based organizations - Brattleboro Solidarity, The Root Social Justice Center, Lost River Racial Justice, and The Tenants Union of Brattleboro came together last summer during the Black Lives Matter uprisings. Later, we were joined by 350 Brattleboro, the VT Debt Collective, Youth 4 Change, and Out in the Open (supporting remotely). Together, we recognized that, while we were witnessing the streets come alive across the country against police brutality, the streets must stay alive in order to enact the level of broad changes across struggles that are urgently needed - for humans, animals, and the planet. 
The coalition acts with these shared principles:  

  1. Everyone should have what they need. 
  2. People’s lives over profit. 
  3. All of our struggles are tied together. 

We believe that the basic necessities for a healthy life are non-negotiable. There is no excuse for hunger, homelessness, or death from curable diseases anywhere in the world. All of our struggles are tied together. We believe that the struggle for Black liberation and against police brutality and racism is also a struggle against the exploitation of poor working people. We see how those with power benefit from the divisions that they sow amongst us. We acknowledge and address our diverse struggles while we assert that we have more commonalities than differences. We are stronger together.
We are on the street on Fridays because we believe that being united in our struggles is important in paving a new path forward. We choose not to fight against or react to those who disagree with us, but rather invite them to talk with us so that we may find our common interests and beliefs. Being on the streets together raises our spirits, breaks isolation, and helps build a network of people who want to do this work together. We invite you to join us weekly on Fridays to make connections - both with other people and between struggles! - and to take a stand for a more just world.

Milk with Dignity Tour
presented by Migrant Justice and hosted by All Souls Church
Friday, October 22nd, 2021 at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church (20 South St., West Brattleboro, VT, 05301). 6:30pm-8pm.
Questions? Contact [email protected]
On Oct. 22 farmworkers from Migrant Justice will be at the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 20 South St., West Brattleboro from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. to spread the word about their groundbreaking Milk with Dignity program. It's been four years since Ben & Jerry's joined Milk with Dignity. In that time, the program has meant pay raises, paid sick leave, new health & safety standards, improved housing, and protections against sexual harassment, discrimination, and unjust firings for hundreds of workers on farms in Ben & Jerry’s supply chain. Through the program’s worker-defined standards and binding enforcement mechanisms, workers have become frontline defenders of their human rights.
But the work doesn't end there! Many farmworkers remain outside the protections of Milk with Dignity, living and working in unjust, unsafe, and undignified conditions.
Migrant Justice farmworkers are fighting to expand Milk with Dignity and calling on Hannaford Supermarkets to join. This event in Brattleboro is part of a 3-week northeast speaking tour to build support for the Hannaford campaign. Learn more about how you can get involved and help bring this powerful program to Hannaford’s dairy supply chain.
