Join the cause and become a champion for New Hampshire! Give today!
Communities across New Hampshire are calling for democratic and environmental rights to protect their communities from harm. Communities are looking to the NHCRN to advance their rights and challenge our legal and governing system. Further, they are now driving forward a first-of-its-kind Community Rights state constitutional amendment.
Earlier this year, that amendment was debated and voted on in New Hampshire’s House of Representatives. The proposed amendment, advanced by the NHCRN, recognizes the authority of people in towns throughout the state to enact local rights-based laws. It empowers people to use their local governing authority to protect the health, safety, and welfare of both humans and natural environments. It removes communities’ vulnerability to state and corporate power, safeguarding them from corporate exploitation.
Give to Protect NH People & Places!
The NH Community Rights Amendment received support from a legislative subcommittee with a recommendation of “ought-to-pass”. And in its first attempt on the House floor, it received support from one-third of the body present and voting – more than halfway to the required three-fifths majority needed for advancement to the state Senate.
The NH Community Rights Amendment will be reintroduced in the 2019 legislative session because our quality of life, indeed our very lives and those of our children and future generations, depend on it.
You can become a champion! help Community Rights spread statewide in New Hampshire.

HOST A DEMOCRACY SCHOOL
Democracy School explores the limits of conventional regulatory organizing and offers a new organizing model that helps citizens confront the usurpation by corporations of the rights of communities, people, and earth. Lectures cover the history of people’s movements and corporate power, and the dramatic organizing over the last decade in Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Ohio, Colorado, Washington, and Oregon by communities confronting agribusiness, the oil and gas industry, corporate hegemony over worker rights, and others. Included with enrollment in the Democracy School is a 300 plus-page book of background reading material.
BRING A NHCRN FUNDRAISER &
EDUCATIONAL EVENT TO YOUR COMMUNITY!
This March, Alliance for Newmarket Citizen & Ecosystem Rights (ANCER) partnered with NH folk trio Oak & Ivy for a fundraising event to benefit NHCRN's work educating elected officials and communities about the right of local community self-government. The show includedtwo great sets from the trio with a brief presentation on NHCRN's work in between. It was a great event for people, planet, our local ability to protect both, and NHCRN's efforts to help mobilize this people's movement.
