We Stand in Solidarity

black lives matter protest at vermont capitol

The brutal murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25th broke our hearts. Since then, many in our nation have rallied together to use their voices to demand change. And many more have begun the individual work to understand systemic racism. Downstreet stands with them.

It is my deepest hope that we are on the cusp of transformative change. It will take all of us individually and together to become a world where all of humanity is valued. Today,  I commit to doing my work and using my voice. Today, I commit our Downstreet team to doing our work and using our voice. The Downstreet community has always been rooted in social justice for all. With clarity of purpose and change upon us, together we can make a difference.

In peace and purpose,
Eileen Peltier
Executive Director
