From SCDC:

"We are truly a grassroots organization, and we know how to make a little go a long way! That said, Strafford County is a uniquely important voting ground within the state, and New Hampshire is a key state in national elections. Because of this, every little bit matters. Donations and support can literally make a world of difference."  How you can help »

We All Belong Here-Resisting Racism & Bigotry

From AFSC:

Share and display these images in your community to help create welcoming spaces for all. 

Between Nov. 9—the day after the presidential election—and Nov. 15, the Southern Poverty Law Center collected 437 reports of hateful intimidation and harassment from around the country.

Muslims, immigrants, women, and Black and LGBTQ communities were all targets of these attacks. These incidents took place on public transportation, in the streets, in places of worship—but the majority took place in K-12 schools. These attacks are happening to our communities, our friends, and loved ones.

Driven by a desire to provide tools for schools and the larger community to create space for discussion and declare solidarity, artists Micah Bazant and Kate DeCiccio partnered with AFSC, Forward Together, Jewish Voice for Peace, Center for New Community, and Showing Up for Racial Justice to produce these beautiful images.

Share these posters widely in your community. You can:

Tri Town Meeting Feb 9th, 7 PM-Guest Speaker Olivia Zink, from Open Democracy


Update:

Hi folks,

In lieu of the weather predictions for tomorrow, we think it wise to cancel our TriTown Dems Meeting on Thursday, February 9. 

We will email out the agenda with some notes and have a few questions for you, so you won't be totally off the hook for participation and sharing of ideas!  But we do want everyone to be safe from driving in the predicted, and sometimes unpredictable, weather.

As we are developing that agenda and notes to share, please send me any items or notes you would like to be included for either notice or discussion. 

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know. 

Stay safe in the storm.


Our next scheduled meeting will be on February 9th, at 7:00 PM in Milton at the Emma Ramsey Center. Our speaker will be Olivia Zink, from Open Democracy. She will speak about voting rights and campaign finance reform.

About Open Democracy:

Founded in 2009 by renowned reformer Doris “Granny D” Haddock (1910-2010), Open Democracy is leading the New Hampshire movement to strengthen democracy and stop the corrupting influence of special interest money in politics. Over the past five years, we have educated and engaged thousands of New Hampshire citizens through nonpartisan grassroots campaigns, film and theatrical events, a national speaker series, research and publications, and local and state advocacy initiatives. In 2014, we partnered with citizens in 52 New Hampshire towns to pass warrant articles calling for an end to corporate and union spending in political campaigns under Citizens United.
