Local Livable Wage Coalitions have sprung up in several Vermont
communities since the fall of 1996, including, Burlington, Central
Vermont, Addison County, the Randolph area, Lamoille County,
and Brattleboro. Each group has chosen to work on a variety of
activities and have made much progress in a short period of time. Some
groups remain active today while others have joined the statewide
Burlington Livable City Coalition!
