Organization Goals

"We are a Vermont grass roots organization dedicated since 1989 to protecting property rights. Our members are located in all counties of the state and include people from all walks of life. We are not tied to any political party."

"Goal-Reform the permit process and repeal the regulatory nonsense of wetlands dry most of the year, of protected species thriving outside Vermont, of forbidden use of land with no compensation and of other false presumptions of unlimited governmental rights. Now, more than ever, we must affirm Vermont's authentic voice."
