Opening Day: NH People's Platform - Rights & Democracy NH

Opening Day: NH People's Platform

Join Rights and Democracy NH and other allied groups on the opening day of the legislature for a visibility in front of the State House at 830am to greet legislators on their way in to caucus. At 9am we will host a press conference in the Legislative Office Building to lift up our report: “New Hampshire Together: Voices from the Granite State” and announce our NH People's Platform. After the press conference we will be heading back to the state house with our issue signs to show our strength on the statehouse steps and in the halls of the statehouse to greet even more incoming legislators.

“New Hampshire Together: Voices from the Granite State” is the result of a survey of 889 residents who filled out the New Hampshire Community Survey. This report is part of a national Rural and Small-Town Organizing Strategy launched earlier this year by People’s Action, a national organization of which Rights & Democracy New Hampshire is an affiliate. 

We talked to people in communities throughout New Hampshire – at farmers’ markets, community meetings, parades, at their doorsteps and on the phone – they shared both the same deep concerns and broad agreement on common solutions.

We found strong agreement among substantial majorities that the major issues facing Granite State families and communities are: lack of access to affordable health care; the impact of the overdose crisis; quality public education; jobs that don’t pay enough; the cost of meeting the basics in life; the affordability of college and career training; and pollution of land and water.
