Our commitment to learning and action on injustice

In Vermont, racism and bigotry has been tied to land ownership and access. For nearly every organization in the land trust movement there is hard work ahead to grapple with this legacy. At VLT we recognize that this critical work deserves attention—and is not something we will ever finish.
