FOCUS host Margaret Harrington talks with Protect Geprag's Park activists Jane Palmer and Rachel Smolker who have been fighting Vermont Gas System's plan to construct a fracked gas pipeline across Geprag's Park in Hinesburg, Vermont.

    Burlington Resource & Recovery Center: On Monday, March 23, we launched the Burlington COVID-19 Resource & Recovery Center, or RRC. The RRC's function is to provide relief to the economic disruption of COVID-19. If you are a renter worried about housing security, a business owner seeking access to federal assistance, a person experiencing homelessness who needs shelter, a Burlingtonian looking for information about City taxes and fees during this time or the federal aid that is coming, or someone looking to volunteer safely, you can get a 1-1 (remote) consult at the RRC and find many resources on the website.
