Twenty UUs, both lay leaders and clergy, came from across New Hampshire to advocate for UU values in Concord on February 14 as part of the interfaith Legislative Advocacy Day. That day we reviewed the bills under consideration the House and Senate, learned effective advocacy techniques and attended bill hearings.
Maggie Fogarty, co-director of NH AFSC, also puts together emails for Voices of Faith. From their statement of purpose: “Voices of Faith is a growing community of people from multiple faith traditions who believe in the power of moral witness as a force for social and political transformation for a more just and equitable society.” To learn about their upcoming witness events, follow Voices of Faith on Facebook. It’s a good way to meet others living their faith in the public
To find out about the bills in process, we recommend subscribing to the very helpful NH State House Watch which is published every Friday by the American Friends Service Committee. It lists all the hearings and votes coming up in the following week. You can decide which ones are most important to you.
