Help the NHCRN Meet our Organizing and Outreach Goals!
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.
In 2018, the NH Community Rights state constitutional 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.

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 was reintroduced in the 2019 legislative session and will continue to be introduced because our quality of life, indeed our very lives and those of our children and future generations, depend on it.
