NHYD Annouces Granite Slate Awards-Fri, Dec 13TH Manchester


We are excited to welcome one of the fiercest advocates for young people in the Senate, Senator Bernie Sanders, as our special guest speaker at next Friday's Granite Slate Awards!

Bernie has fought tirelessly for the shrinking middle class. His unwavering focus on the growing gap between the rich and everyone else, as well as his career-long policy dedication, makes him a role model for young people running for office or in office and the embodiment of a dignified, bold political activist fighting for young people every day.

Bernie demonstrates that staying true to your beliefs without the manipulative influence of social, political, or corporate pressure is the true key to owning your own success and power. That's a message the Granite Slate Awards were designed to celebrate!


Doors will open at 5:00pm at the unique (and historic) Masonic Temple in Manchester. We'll enjoy live music, heavy hors d'oeuvres, billiard games, Gatsby vibes, and a chance to explore the rarely seen Masonic Temple - all while celebrating great progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders across our state.

What more could you ask for on Friday the 13th?  

See you there.
