For decades the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza by the state and armies of Israel and the support of the United States for Israel have been a major source of conflict in the Middle East. Now, the President of the United States, Donald Trump has deepened that conflict by asserting that he will move the US embassy to Jerusalem, asserting against international law that the Israeli occupation of that city is permanent.

As Palestinians, the United Nations, and most of the world argue, this recognition of Israel’s claims to the entire city puts an end to any hopes of a two-state solution where the State of Israel and a future Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine, will live side by side in peace. This workshop will examine the meaning of this move by President Trump and, more importantly, ask, “What's Next?”

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger Offers City Resources in response to Covid 19 Pandemic

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. For more information, call (802) 755-7239 or go to the City website:
