Exercise Your Rights (Chittenden County Team)

THE STORY:

Friends,

(Noah and Avery): This is the third year the Fabulous Book Brothers will be exercising for human rights. It's become a tradition for us to get into shape over the summer while raising money for two incredible organizations, Migrant Justice and the Vermont Workers' Center. This is also the first time Avery be doing this as a volunteer, and not while on staff with the Workers' Center.

Please support us as we run farther than we've ever done in a race (the Shelburne 10K on Saturday, July 22nd) and help us reach our highest goal, yet, of $1,600! 

(Avery) I have never encountered nor worked with organizations quite as inspiring as the Vermont Workers' Center and Migrant Justice. They've been organizing to win ground-breaking victories (like the Healthcare is a Human victory that will make Vermont the first state in the country with a universal healthcare system grounded in human rights, and the recent victory that won access to driver's licenses for all, regardless of immigration status). They also bring together an incredible area of innovative tactics (use of new media, grassroots organizing, political and popular education, leadership development, story-based organizing, and the human rights framework). Most importantly, they are both value-driven organizations that build real power led by people most affected by the oppressive systems were trying to change. 

They also have taken incredible leadership in building a broad mass movement in Vermont through organizing the Vermont Peoples Convention, the Peoples' Forums last Fall, and a joint legislative strategy this past Spring. 

As many of you know, I recently (well, last December) transitioned away from being a paid organizer with the Vermont Workers' Center to doing music full time. I would also like to continue developing my Spanish-language skills, and to stay engaged with the language justice movement. My love for these two organizations has only grown since I left staff, as has my appreciation for the grassroots nature of both.

(Noah): As when I ran last for the last two year, I am still committed to cultivating a healthy lifestyle that balances exercise, nutrition, work and fun. I will be moving away from Vermont at the end of this summer, and I really want to support vital work by Migrant Justice and the Workers' Center before I leave! 

Thank you for your support!

Avery and Noah
