PTV strives to ensure that the buildings, gathering places, and stories we preserve reflect the diversity found in Vermont’s history and present. We have helped preserve several properties on Vermont’s African American Heritage Trail, supported BIPOC owned businesses, and have partnered with indigenous communities to preserve culturally significant sites. But will still have work to do. PTV recognizes that historic preservation as a field has often valued the historic assets and stories of those in power, a dynamic our organization is committed to changing. We are working to include more people of color on our board and staff, prioritizing projects in historically marginalized communities, and participating in forums that challenge our biases and perceptions about equity, belonging, and inclusion.
