Johnson Village Anti-Racism Statement

The Johnson Village Board of Trustees stands with our Town and Village’s Inclusivity Statement and the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy and the historic oppression of the black community. We believe that Black Lives Matter and remain fully committed to being proactive as leaders in standing up to and publicly rejecting any racism and bigotry in our community. We are committed to listening and learning from our Black, Brown, Indigenous, and concerned citizens. We are committed to working with the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department and our legislators to deconstruct all policies and laws that create and amplify racism and poverty in our community. We are committed to continuing to fund and organize educational programming on racial justice, and racial bias for all Johnson residents and the surrounding communities. We REJECT racism, bigotry, discrimination, hatred and violence in all its forms.
