A message from the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce:

We are committed to respect, equal justice and opportunity for all. We are against racism, bigotry or hatred. We will work to enhance equity and inclusion in every aspect of Chamber activity.  We recognize these goals cannot be achieved as long as racism oppresses any Chamber member, friend, neighbor, visitor, or any person in our community.
We pledge to do everything in our power to combat discrimination and racism by listening, learning, and moving forward in ways that enhance unity, equity, and opportunity. We invite feedback from members and nonmembers alike to help us all grow together toward our common goal of advancing equality for everyone.
