The Commission for Witness and Action of the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ will host a Legislative Advocacy Day to provide tools and information to faith-based activists interested in making their voices heard by New Hampshire policy makers. Issues include tax and education policy, immigrants rights, corporate influence. Trainers include Rev. Gail Kinney, Arnie Alpert of AFSC, and Cathy Silber of Granite State Priorities. After orientation and training at South Congregational Church, participants will go to the State House and Legislative Office Building to attend hearings and find their legislators. All are welcome.
