Uniting for Action: New Hampshire Taking Action Across New Hampshire's Urban/Rural Divide
What is this program all about? Uniting for Action: NH is a NON-PARTISAN initiative to build connections and take joint action to address community challenges across distance and difference in New Hampshire.
Who is this for? New Hampshire residents 18+ from urban, suburban, and rural areas with wide-ranging views who are tired of waiting for elected officials to address their community's needs AND want to take action themselves to improve The Granite State. In other words, it's for you!
How are we doing this? We'll meet once a month on Zoom for structured discussion, small group brainstorming, and collaboration focused on TAKING ACTION to strengthen our democracy. When it's possible for all of us to collaborate in person for a major summit, we'll do so. More details below...
