Vermont is more than just the home of Howard Dean, one-time presidential candidate and perennial American Don Quixote. In fact, Vermont is much more progressive, and much more solid in its progressive traditions, than Governor Dean ever has been. If you want to learn about grassroots democracy in action, Vermont is the best place in the world to go.
To understand Vermont, think Bernie Sanders, not Howard Dean.
The people of Vermont are struggling, just like everyone else, to find a balance between love of the land and love of the people who inhabit the land. Vermont is a great place to live, and so threatens to be burst open by newcomers from New York City and suburban New England. Even WalMart is threatening to set up shop in Vermont, though the locals are fighting the sweatshop giant tooth and nail.
Given the amount of progressive activity going on in Vermont, there's no way that we can find all of the state's progressive organizations all on our own. New groups are being created all the time, and some old ones fall by the wayside. So, if you know of any progressive candidates, information resources or organizations in Vermont that we don't have listed here, let us know so we can consider including them in our growing index of local progressives.
