Courage Over Censorship: A March & Meditation on the Consequences of HB 544

June 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

About this event

While the House and Senate are meeting to negotiate a budget compromise, we want them to hear clearly from the people of New Hampshire, both the original language of HB 544 and its amended version have no place in our budget, in our laws, or in our hearts.

This is an event to show our opposition to the entire premise of HB 544 in all of its permutations. This is a flawed premise and a flawed process, perpetuated by a flawed Legislature.

We will gather at 4:00 pm on the corner of N. Main St. and Park St. Please wear a mask both for public safety and for the visuals of our silent march around the state Capitol. We’ll be passing out red or white duct tape X’s for participants to put on their masks as we march to the Capitol steps.

Participants are encouraged to bring a book that changed their perspective on systemic racism/inequity that might be considered “divisive” under the new law and treat the event as a giant book swap. Attendees will be welcomed to place their book on the capitol steps and at the end of the event, anyone who brings a book can pick a new one!

We will then have speakers and songs as well as actions people can take that day to voice their opposition to both this legislation and the actions of this legislature.

Feel free to bring appropriate homemade signs, books to swap, banners, or artwork. As always, for all of our health and safety please observe CDC guidelines and maintain social distance as often as possible.

NH Peace Action is a co-sponsor of this event.
