Bridge to Rutland is a group of Rutland County residents working to bring asylum-seekers to Vermont and to support them once they’re here. Asylum is a protection granted to a foreigner already living in the United States or a person arriving at the border who is unable to safely return to their home country because of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. For more information see B2R About page.
