SAVE THE DATE for the ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING!

10:00 am - 2:00 pm @ Concord, NH

Please save June 1, 2019 for NH Peace Action’s Annual Membership Meeting. 

This is a very important meeting.  Board members are elected, budgets are set as well as priorities for the organization.

Due to an unforeseen family emergency, Dr. Darnisa Amante will be unable to join us.

Instead, our after lunch guest will be: Brenda Bailey Lett of the NH Black Women Health Project and co-author of “Race Between Us”, that tells the story of the profound and inescapable truths that emerge when barriers are removed and honest dialogue happens.

Brenda Bailey Lett was born in Chicago IL.  She has a Masters in Community Mental Health and Community Economic Development from Southern NH University and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of Dubuque. She is National Secretary of the National Coalition Of Blacks for Reparations in America (N’COBRA), Board Chair of NH Black Women Health Project, Board Member of the Greater Manchester Black Scholarship Foundation and Former President, NAACP Manchester Branch.  Brenda is a community activist and justice advocate.

Brenda Bailey Lett will lead a discussion centered on the three evils – the evil of racism, the evil of poverty, and the evil of war – spoken of by Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1967. What did he mean then, and how are these evils manifesting today? Further, how we can look beyond the walls that separate our peace and social justice work towards a unified Beloved Community? How might these issues inform NH Peace Action’s work as we move forward in planning for our future work?

This will be a potluck luncheon, business meeting and networking event.    10 am to 2 pm, McLane Audubon Center, 84 Silk Farm Rd., Concord.

Poor People's Moral Action Congress

8:30 am - 11:59 pm @ Washington, DC

We in New Hampshire are joining 40 other states as we together gather in DC to:

  • launch the Poor People’s Campaign Moral and Constitutional Budget
  • hold a National Freedom School
  • invite Presidential candidates for a forum on our demands and budget
  • visit Capitol Hill during the Congress and have requested a hearing at Congress

RSVP with this event so that you can get in on the group rates for registration, travel and food!

Here’s a few Frequently Asked Questions–if you need to know more, just reply to this email!

How much will it cost to attend?
Our goal is to ensure that no one will be turned away based on their ability to pay. Participants can expect to pay between $150 and $250 for registration, which will include meals and local transportation throughout the Congress.

What about housing?
Dorm style housing will be available both at Trinity Washington University and Howard University (less than 1 mile from Trinity). Housing rates will be as low as $45/person/night for those sharing rooms and as high as $75/person/night for those wanting single rooms in shared suites. For groups that want low-cost housing we are working with several churches in the area that may make some of their facilities available (church basement floors) at low-cost for groups.

Will there be financial assistance?
Yes! We are collecting donations locally to reduce all of our costs. The National Poor People’s Campaign is also giving us some grant money to make sure cost is not a barrier for anyone’s participation. Please go ahead and RSVP!

I can’t attend–can I donate so that others can attend?
Yes! Please click here to donate and choose “Poor People’s Campaign” from the pull-down menu.

PLEASE RSVP soon with this link so that we can know to expect you!

Concord Market Days

7:00 am - 10:00 pm @ Main St., Concord

NH Peace Action will again this year have a booth at Concord Market Days.  This is a great opportunity to talk to people about the things we are all so passionate about and work so hard for.  It’s also a good time to expand our membership!  And we get to make a little money, too.  It’s a lot of fun!

We need volunteers  to help us do that.  Even just a couple of hours is extremely helpful!  Doreen will set up the booth each morning: Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 20, 21, and 22.  Will will take the last shift and close down the booth in the evening.

We are grateful for any shift you can take!  Please CLICK HERE and fill in the google sheet with the shift you can work.  Please email Doreen@nhpeaceaction.org if you have any trouble with the doc.

Thank you!
