Vermont stands out as a state that works hard to promote a high quality of life while cognizant of our human footprint. Vermont "exceptionalism" fades, however, when we consider the effects of racism and racial inequality on black lives. There, Vermont is a state much like any other. This talk presents findings on racial disparities in policing by the Burlington and S. Burlington Police Departments and the Vermont State Police.
