The Vermont Youth Lobby is a grassroots coalition of young people and adult allies from across the state who are working together in partnership with legislators, community members, nonprofit organizations, and the local business community to affect the changes younger generations are demanding. We are committed to nonviolence and inclusivity of ideas from across the political spectrum, as long as they are for the betterment of our collective future, and not the profit of a few.
We work with the system, not against it, and always promote polite, civil, and fact-based dialogue in the pursuit of a better future and more informed solutions. We only hope that those in power can learn to do the same.
Is to help Vermont youth more effectively use the power they have as democratic citizens to affect significant change through responsible, informed, collective action and civil discourse. We strive to be polite, respectful, and fierce.
About The Name:
Our name, The Youth Lobby, is a pun.
Do you get it? There are no lobbyists who advocate solely for the needs of future generations.
That’s why it’s funny. Or not.
We are, in no way, an “official” lobbying organization and none of us are paid lobbyists.
