Alliance Legislative Agenda: Weekly Issue Spotlight – Mid-Session Legislative Agenda Update/Roundup – 3/11

This winter, the Alliance is hosting virtual Weekly Issue Spotlights leading up to ECDL. Each session focuses on one or two issues from the Alliance’s 2024 Legislative Agenda. Joined by representatives from the lead organizations, participants can ask direct questions and hear a brief legislative update regarding the issues. 

The next session will be held Monday, March 11, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, and will provide updates on the status of the issues on the Alliance's '24 Legislative Agenda as the Legislature passes the half-way point of their annual session.

Led by Matt Levin, the Executive Director of the Alliance, this session is a great opportunity to learn more about these issues, where they stand in the Legislature, and how to get involved.


3SquaresVT Outreach and Policy Conference – 6/18

Hunger Free Vermont (HFV) will be hosting their virtual 3SquaresVT Outreach and Policy Conference “From Policy to Practice” on June 18. The Conference will help participants to gain a deeper knowledge of 3SquaresVT with special focus on their four themes: advocacy, education, outreach, and policy.

Following the virtual conference, in July, August, and September, HFV will host regional outreach gatherings to dig deeper with folks in their communities to understand the unique opportunities and challenges faced in increasing awareness, understanding, and participation in 3SquaresVT.
