Annual Conference

24th Annual Conference – Making Sense of the World

Friday, December 1st, 2017 at the Hilton Burlington in Burlington, Vermont

How does Vermont address issues of social justice? How should we address these issues in the classroom? The Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer in the state. He is charged with representing the state in all matters in which the state is a party or has an interest. Recent and continuing work of the AG’s office includes:

  • Filing a lawsuit to protect Dreamers and preserve DACA
  • Convening a Racial Disparities Panel
  • Urging congress to protect transgender service members
  • Supporting protecting national monuments
  • Joining coalition of state Attorneys General in suing the U.S. DOE for abandoning critical student protections
  • Protecting LGBTQ employees from discrimination

Come hear Vermont’s Attorney General T.J. Donovan discuss the work his office is doing around social justice on both the Vermont and national stages.
