August 3, 2020. To aid municipalities and local leaders who hope to expand the vibrancy of their communities and ensure that recovery benefits all Vermonters, the Local Solutions and Community Action Team of the governor’s Economic Mitigation and Recovery Task Force created the Municipal Engagement for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Guide.
We in Vermont are in a time of rapid change, learning, and opportunity as we recognize diversity in our communities and advance equity and inclusion. Different towns and cities work at different scales and in different circumstances. Therefore, the guide is not designed to be prescriptive. Rather it provides key ideas that can be adapted as necessary.
Please share the guide with other local leaders so they, too, can strengthen their communities as we all work together for a more just and inclusive future.
