NH Progressive Summit 2018-Resistance To Power-Saturday, June 2, 9 AM - 5 PM

Registration is now open for the NH Progressive Summit 2018! Join us for this annual conference for new and veteran activists to come together and be inspired by one another as we collectively learn, train, strategize, and mobilize for the issue and electoral challenges and opportunities we face together.


 NH Progressive Summit 2018-Resistance To Power-Saturday, June 2, 9 AM - 5 PM
 Manchester Community College
1066 Front St, Manchester, New Hampshire 03102comm

 The annual NH Progressive Summit provides space for new and veteran activists to come together and be inspired by one another as we collectively learn, train, strategize, and mobilize for the issue and electoral challenges and opportunities we face together.

This year’s theme is “Resistance to Power.” We are a movement of ideas and action, and the last year has shown what we can achieve when we are focused and organized. We will continue to beat back the attacks on our health care and public education. We will fight for equal rights for immigrants and the LGBTQ community. We will support access to the full range of reproductive rights without stigma or shame. We will demand the clean air and water we all deserve. We will advance strong public safety laws. We will seek a local, inclusive economy that puts working families first. And we will take back our state and elections from powerful special interests and the politicians who aid them.

Across the country and our state, people are awake and ready to engage. The time is now for us to own the future of progressive politics. Whether it’s advancing legislation at the state and federal level, guarding against conservative rhetoric, or challenging corporate political corruption of our legislative and electoral process – the 2018 NH Progressive Summit will be an exciting, action-packed day to come together as we shape a bold, new progressive future.

Hosted by Granite State Progress with the support and teamwork of some of the best organizations in the state!

Rochester Historical Society -That Reminds Me of a Story by Rebecca Rule-May 10th

The Rochester Historical Society has received a grant from New
Hampshire Humanities to present
That Reminds Me of a Story by RebeccaRule on Thursday, May 10, at 7 PM at the Rochester
Historical Society Museum at 58 Hanson Street in downtown Rochester.
  Stories
speak to us of
community. They hold our history and reflect our identity.  Becky has made it her
mission over the last 20 years to collect stories of New Hampshire, especially
those that reflect what's special about this rocky old place. She'll tell some
of those stories, her favorites are the funny ones, and invite audience members
to contribute a few stories of their own. 
From Pittsburg to Peterborough (Peeta-burah), Becky is out and about telling and gathering stories with a strong dose of good old-fashioned Yankee humor
(humah). She loves to laugh and to get others laughing, too.

Becky is a full-time writer, humorist, and storyteller.  She hasn't visited every town in the Granite State, but pretty close — speaking at libraries, historical societies, rotaries, clubs, church groups, and charitable organizations. Some of her talks are sponsored by the NH Humanities Council, which named her one of 40 Over 40, that is, one of 40 NH folks who over the past 40 years of the Council's existence "have demonstrated what it means to create, teach, lead, assist, and encourage human understanding."

She is the author of eleven books, including N is for New Hampshire. Her other titles include: Headin’ for the Rhubarb: a NH Dictionary (well kinda) and Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire as well as the children’s picture book, The Iciest Diciest Scariest Sled Ride Ever. For ten years she hosted "The New Hampshire Authors Series" on NHPTV. She currently hosts
"Our Hometown" also on NHPTV.

This program is free and open to the public.
Refreshments will follow the meeting.

New Hampshire Humanities nurtures the joy of learning
and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the
humanities to the people of New Hampshire.  They connect people with
ideas.  Learn more at
www.NHHumanities.org.

Society at 603 330-3099 or rochesterhistorical@metrocast.net.

March for Science 2018-Saturday, April 14th, 8AM-5PM

From March for Science: In 2017, more than one million people around the world gathered to defend science for the common good and its role in policy and society. Since then, science has continued to face increasing threats at the federal, state, and local levels.

But science will not be silenced - and it’s time to unite again. This year, let’s come together to send a message: we will hold our elected and appointed officials responsible for enacting equitable, evidence-based policies that serve all communities.

Let’s use our collective voices to send a powerful message to policymakers and those running for office in 2018 - over the phone, at town halls and community meetings, and at the ballot box. We march for many reasons, but unite to defend science -- because science belongs to us all.
