The NH Bail and Bond Fund believes that nobody should be in jail because they cannot afford bail or bond.
In the fall of 2020, the Fund saw a marked increase in need for our services at the Valley Street Jail. At “Getting Free, Staying Free”, we will hear why this is the case and what we can do about it.
UU Mass Action senior organizer Cassandra Bensahih, a leader in criminal justice reform in Massachusetts. A mother whose life has been personally impacted by incarceration, she will talk about the urgent need for change to our incarceration system and why social action matters now more than ever.
A panel of NH leaders will respond to Cassandra’s comments, discussing the state of criminal justice in NH and opportunities for change in NH. Sarah Dan Jones, Director of Music Ministry of Starr King UU Fellowship of Plymouth NH, will provide music.

Speaking Justice in the Language of our Faith: Voter Outreach Edition
Tuesday, September 29
7PM on Zoom
(NOTE: we will finish before the presidential debate)
Are you worried about the outcome of the election? The best way to confront this anxiety is to act, specifically to help groups like UU the Vote and the Granite State Organizing Project turn out voters.
This workshop invites UUs to deepen their understanding of the Seven Principles as it connects to their personal beliefs and ideals, then practice speaking about justice work in way that is deeply rooted in UU values.
This workshop is for Unitarian Universalists who want to become more comfortable speaking about their passion for justice in a way that is deeply rooted in the Seven Principles and Unitarian Universalist values, in preparation for public speaking, talking on the phone and writing postcards to encourage citizens to vote.
