Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - On opening day of the legislative session, Vermont lawmakers will be hearing from a range of activists participating in what they're calling a 'Put People First' movement.

Leaders of several organizations say they'll gather at noon on Wednesday to push an agenda including affordable health care access for all, accessible transportation, a healthy environment and inclusion of people with disabilities.

Organizers say they expect hundreds of people to attend the rally and will deliver thousands of postcards to lawmakers demanding that their agenda be addressed.
