Our Mission

Vital Communities engages Upper Valley people, organizations, and communities to create equitable solutions to our region’s challenges.

To fulfill this mission, we will:

  • Identify, include, engage, and connect diverse groups in our community so that our goals and approach are informed by people of all ages, genders, races, cultures, faiths, abilities, educational backgrounds, professions, documentation status, income levels, sexual orientations, and geographic locations throughout the Upper Valley;
  • Recognize and challenge systemic racism and all forms of discrimination in our organization and community;
  • Incorporate justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in all our efforts.
