Established in 2015, the Central Vermont Refugee Action Network, Inc. (CVRAN) is a Board-governed, registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Montpelier and dedicated to making our communities welcoming safe places for New Vermonters from countries around the world to visit, work, and live in.

One of the most active committees of CVRAN is the Asylum Seekers Assistance Network, which aims to support individuals who have fled their home countries based on fear of persecution and are seeking international protection. CVRAN also supports refugees, who were often in refugee camps for many years and suffered from persecution, violence, social and political instability, deprivation, and homelessness before being allowed to enter the United States. Another important group of new Vermonters CVRAN supports is migrant farm workers who have left their permanent homes to work on dairy farms, usually for years at a time.

The Mexican Consulate from Boston will be in Montpelier on Saturday, October 23rd, at Bethany Church, 115 Main Street, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Mexican citizens can get passports (new and renewed), matricula cards, birth certificates for children of Mexican citizens born in the U.S., and registration for people of double nationality.
