Civic Advocacy Project

This “civic advocacy project” is simply for people who care about people and the world we live in.  

What values do you hold in your heart?  Can they be conveyed in a few words?

Can you take a simple action in accordance with your values, or even one that is a stretch?

Have you found your own style of advocating that is both comfortable and effective?

Do you understand the complexity of the issues you care about?  Do you know the decision making process that impacts those issues?  Can you find up to date information quickly?

Have you “practiced democracy” by voting, having a civil conversation, or writing to your representatives?  Are you ready to have more experiences for greater impact?

Does it relieve you to know that others care as deeply as you do?  Are you grateful to those who offer their support?  And are you just as grateful when you can offer assistance to others?

If your answer to any of these questions leads you to a desire to “advocate from the heart, with confidence grounded in knowledge, experience and connections” then welcome to this civic advocacy project.

State House Watch Party

Over forty people gathered to watch the NH House of Representative’s session as it was live streamed on Thursday.  Susan Ticehurst explained the procedures, with the help of Syndi White.

You can see live House and Senate sessions, (as well as some hearings), at http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/media/default.htm.  You will also find video and audio recordings of past sessions.

To see what’s coming up for committee hearings or sessions, check the House Calendar and Senate Calendar, which are posted late on Thursday afternoons.

More information about the legislative branch of government can be found at the General Court website.

Due to the response, more watch parties will be held on other days and times, at other locations.  To host one in your community, contact Susan.Ticehurst@gmail.com for details.
