BENEFITING: Vermont Workers' Center and Migrant Justice
ORGANIZER: Vermont Workers' Center and Migrant Justice
EVENT: Exercise Your Rights
If you know me, you know how much I love the VWC and Migrant Justice. That's why this is the third year I'm raising money and training for the long-haul work of fighting for human rights. This year it's many miles of bike riding--35 to be exact--which is more than I've ever done before.
How to support me:
Just click "DONATE TO THIS FUNDRAISER" over there on the right. I'm raising $30 per mile with an overall goal of $1,050. Here are your options:
1 mile = $30
2 miles = $60
3 miles - $90
And, to get me up those steep rolling VT hills, I'll need a couple...
"Super-Supporter Hill-Climing Donors" = $150.
or... whatever amount works for you!!
Why support me:
-I haven't ridden a bike since last year's ride, so I'm going to need your encouragement to train.
-To recieve silly, maybe potentially hilarious pics and videos from the ride (uh, like video I've posted to the left).
-To make sure our social justice organizations can be guided and owned democratically by those who believe in our mission, principles and values, not by outside foundations who can tell us what to do
-Because, seriously, there's a lot of work to be done to make this world a better place and stand up for human rights. This year, I've seen poverty get worse and more people lose jobs or work for less. I've seen discrimination, hate and oppression go unaddressed. And I've seen too many people I love struggle to live lives with dignity because of a system that doesn't put people first. Your support for my race will help make sure we can continue social justice, organizing, education, movement building and action throughout VT so we can lead the way for the country.
