In January 2021, NH Civics was connected with a Civics Roundtable group and reached out to other groups as well about starting a coalition for state policy in New Hampshire. All organizations were enthusiastic about the topic and the work. NH Civics was encouraged by the enthusiasm and support and its Trustees decided to raise funds to pursue this project. The Coalition's goals are as follows:
In spring 2022, NH Civics will host five community conversations throughout NH in partnership with New Hampshire Public Radio and moderated by Laura Knoy, former host of NHPR’s acclaimed call-in news show, The Exchange. These conversations will explore questions such as: What is a good citizen? How are good citizens developed? How do good citizens come to be, and how can we support that development? and will provide an opportunity for community members all across the state to share feedback on the Coalition's policy recommendations.
