Addressing racism

To the Editor,
Amidst the flurry of concluding business, the Vermont Senate passed three resolutions that are small but important steps to acknowledge and address racism in the state.
The first, JRH 6, a joint resolution of the House and Senate, declares that racism is a public health emergency.
The second, SR 10, designates May 2021 as Asian-American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in Vermont. The resolution also condemns anti-Asian and anti-Pacific Islander hate in the United States.
