Mission

The Peace & Justice Center (PJC) is a Vermont-based, non-profit, membership organization that works on the intersecting issues of economic and racial justice, and peace and human rights through education, advocacy, training, and non-violent activism.

Created in 1996 by the PJC, the Vermont Livable Wage Campaign (VLWC) is a coalition of local living wage activists, non-profit advocacy groups, unions, and religious communities. The VLWC is engaged in research, advocacy, educational programs, and grassroots organizing in it's dedication to ensuring that every Ve
rmonter receives a livable wage or income.

The VLWC believes that all Vermonters have the right to a livable wage job that meets their basic needs, to organize themselves into a union, and to work in a respectful work environment.

We are building a statewide movement of working people and their allies who are fighting to win livable wages through community-based organizing and union solidarity efforts. We believe that our hard-earned tax dollars should be invested in our communities to promote livable wage job creation rather than corporate subsidies which threaten the economy and culture of our state. While the VLWC is non-partisan, we do engage in public policy and legislative initiatives that increase the income and expand the rights of workers in Vermont.

The Vermont Livable Wage Campaign is a coalition of local living wage groups, non-profit advocacy groups, unions, and religious communities dedicated to ensuring that every Vermonter receives a livable wage or income.
