Rutland supports asylum-seekers

2018 Rutland demonstration in support of asylum seekers

Now that restrictions are being lifted on asylum seekers entering the country, we’re excited to get to work. And we know that Rutland is behind us!

Looking back on pictures from the past few years, we can see all of the love that Rutland County has for those in need. Lighting candles and taking to the streets, we showed that love, not hate, makes America great. And we know that these newcomers will enrich our communities and strengthen our economy, bringing new ideas and new goods, opening up niche markets.

We can’t wait to meet our new neighbors!
