Raise Up VT - Community Survey
Raise Up VT is Rights & Democracy's (RAD's) economic justice campaign. This year, RAD is in the Vermont State House and in your community, organizing folks who want to help us win a $15/hour minimum wage in Vermont, a statewide Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance program (similar to Unemployment Insurance or Social Security), and increased public enforcement capacity for corporate abuse of consumers, workers, and vulnerable adults.

Please fill out this survey to the best of your ability to help us understand your values and concerns about economic justice in your community.

If you have any questions, please contact whoever sent the survey to you!
