A Violence-Free Vermont is Possible

Every Vermonter has the right to live a life free from violence.

In Vermont, we care about our neighbors and value our state as a safe place to live, work, and raise a family. Yet, thousands of Vermonters experience domestic or sexual violence each year- usually behind closed doors.

If we want to do better for our kids and the next generation of Vermonters, we need to prevent this violence before it starts. Vermont currently does not invest any state dollars in violence prevention. It’s time for our lawmakers to ensure that violence has no place in Vermont. Investing in violence prevention should be a priority for our state. 

What’s New With Uplift

Listen now to our new podcast Uplift Conversations where we dig into the social and community contexts that contribute to a culture where violence can thrive and what we can all do as individuals and members of communities to change that culture of violence and create a world in which all people can live free.
