The event will be produced as a special hour-long broadcast slated to air on NHPR Thursday, May 26, at 2 PM.
“Our hope is that through our collected civic initiatives we can inform and review how New Hampshire communities are dealing with the state of democracy today as we head into the upcoming midterm elections this fall,” said Michael Brindley, NHPR Program Director.
Martha Madsen, Executive Director of NH Civics, said “We’ve been seeking out diverse ways to reconnect with the community, redefining what active citizenship looks like, and bringing people together to talk about crucial questions – how we live and problem-solve together.”
