To the editor: Local Climate Action 350VT, other groups to rally in Chester for justice issues

Climate Justice, Racial Justice, Migrant Justice, LGBTQ+ Justice, VOTE! Economy, Society and Environment are the pillars of sustainability.

To achieve sustainability, economic and social inequalities that exist within our country and globally must be addressed. A peaceful demonstration is planned to bring attention to the inequities and encourage people to vote in the upcoming election.

Organizer Cheryl Joy Lipton of Mountain Valley Climate Action 350VT said, “We want to remind people that this year is a very important year to vote and it is easier than ever before.”

The groups will gather near the junction of Routes 103 and 11 in Chester from 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2,  and from noon to 3 p.m on Sunday, Oct. 4  then again the following weekend on Friday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 11 the same times as the previous weekend.

Please come with signs and a mask and stand 6-feet apart from others. “The environmental and health consequences of climate change disproportionately affect low income, and disenfranchised people, and we only have a short window of time to turn things around. It’s crucial for everyone to vote like their lives depend on it this November,” said co-organizer Melody Reed.
