BRATTLEBORO Solidarity Fridays: This coalition acts with these shared principles: Everyone should have what they need. People's lives over profit.

Being on streets together raises our spirits, breaks isolation, helps build a network of people who want to do this work.". 5 p.m. weekly on Fridays. Brattleboro Solidarity, The Root Social Justice Center, Lost River Racial Justice, Tenants Union of Brattleboro came together last summer during Black Lives Matter uprisings. Later, we were joined by 350 Brattleboro, VT Debt Collective, Youth 4 Change, Out in the Open. We recognize that streets must stay alive to enact the level of broad changes across struggles urgently needed - for humans, animals, the planet.
