Green Mountain Roller Derby is proud to represent #EQUALPAY in this exciting interleague scrimmage.


Inspired by the Burlington High School girls soccer team and Change the Story VT, we're dedicating our first game of 2020 to the #EqualPay movement! (If you haven’t heard of the waves they’re making, check it out here: equalpayjerseys.com


Green Mountain Roller Derby is entirely skater owned and operated, which means our members work just as hard off the track to keep the league running. GMRD skaters are made up from an exceptional group of women and non-binary individuals, varying in professional backgrounds and across many disciplines including: healthcare, engineering, education, hospitality, social work, business and non-profit sectors. Securing women’s financial and economic freedom is personal for us.


Our organization's aim is to empower women personally and athletically through the sport of roller derby. As a part of our mission statement, we strive to be a positive force in our community.There is a persistent wage gap in the state of Vermont and nationwide that has complexity far beyond the conversations we’ve typically heard. Join us in this conversation and supporting the organizations challenging the status quo each day to make real, consequential change.  


The Vermont Women’s Fund will be our non-profit, receiving all proceeds from our 50/50 raffle for the evening. Come out to catch all the action on February 1st and support the Vermont Women’s Fund in conjunction with Change the Story and Vermont Works for Women in their impactful work throughout the state of Vermont and beyond. To further promote palpable change, the Vermont League of Women Voters and the Vermont Suffrage Centennial Alliance will be on site to register new voters and educate our community!
