We are old and bold Vermonters working together to create a liveable future. We have a unique set of skills and resources as well as a culture of cooperation and activism. Let’s continue this tradition and see what we can do together.

Climate Crisis

Here are some of the activities TA VT is working on to address the climate crisis:

  • Divestment – taking funds out of Vermont pension system that finance fossil fuels.
  • Third Act National Campaign to get big banks to stop financing climate destruction
  • A broad platform of Vermont legislative activity incollaboration with other Vermont climate organizations.

Divestment

The Third Act Vermont Divestment Action Team (DAT) is a group of Vermonters over the age of 60 calling on the Vermont Pension Investment Commission (VPIC) to divest the Vermont Pension Plan funds from fossil fuels. The Vermont Pension Plan funds are the combined assets of the Vermont State Teachers Retirement System (VSTRS), the Vermont State Employee Retirement System (VSERS), the Vermont Municipal Employee Retirement System (VMERS), and other public Vermont Retirement Systems.

Regional Groups

Third Act Vermont is unique among the working groups because we are forming smaller groups, based on counties, so members can meet easily in person to take action on local, statewide and national campaigns.

Disclaimer: Working Groups are volunteer-run groups organized by affinity or by geographic location. Working Groups engage in campaign activities, communicate with their Working Group volunteers, and maintain the content on their Working Group webpages.
