VT PoC’s BIPOC Relief Fund

The Vermont Professionals of Color Network (VT PoC) is dedicated to supporting the success of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), also known as the Global Majority, through networking, education, and advocacy. 

This inaugural relief fund was established to support BIPOC small businesses and community members following the 2023 VT Flood and will remain active as an integral part of our network.
