Vermont’s Declaration of Inclusion is a grassroots effort working with community leaders to reinforce the message that Vermont is a welcoming, safe place for all. The goal is to have statewide adoption, including at the state level. Governor Scott issued a Proclamation of Inclusion in May 2021. The Family Center of Washington County adopts the Declaration of Inclusion and welcomes all community members, families, and friends, as well as their talents and skills, treating each other openly and fairly, and providing support and encouragement and belonging.
