The Vermont Releaf Collective is a statewide network created by and for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Vermonters who are involved in land, environment, agriculture, and food systems (the four focus areas). We are a membership based organization, currently comprised of over 100 Releaf members. We are growing a network of BIPOC in Vermont involved in the four focus areas (either through work, pleasure, or both) that amplifies our voices and experiences; shares a platform to connect and support our community; and advocates for opportunity and success in our state and beyond. We envision a Vermont that is an equitable, safe, and just place for BIPOC to work in, participate in, benefit from, lead within, and experience joy through the four focus areas.
