Racial Equity Report 2021

Racial Equity Report

VSARN students were talking about how there are so many racial disparities in Vermont, but we never learn about them. We decided to take matters into our own hands by creating a report that goes over different inequities in our state. We held a press conference to release the 20 page report, and are disseminating it to students to increase education in Vermont.
