It’s important to keep up the pressure against conservative attacks on civil rights, voting rights, environmental protection, healthcare, and the rest of the Trump agenda. However, we’ve made the phone calls to our legislators and Washington reps, we’ve signed on-line petitions, sent emails, and attended rallies, but the legislation and the executive orders keep coming. It’s only been a few weeks and we’re already feeling burned out. Some are even experiencing “outrage fatigue.” Can we really keep this up for two — four! — more years?

From the New Hampshire ACLU
Join us on Saturday, April 1, for the NH March for Voting Rights in downtown Concord. Hundreds of concerned citizens and numerous advocacy organizations dedicated to our democracy and fundamental right to vote will be there. The 1.2 mile march from Concord High School to the State House will be followed by a rally on the steps of the State House and an activist training.

We should be proud that New Hampshire has some of the highest rates of civic participation in the country. Let's keep it that way by encouraging people to vote and training activists to fight back when politicians jeopardize the right of all eligible New Hampshire residents to vote. With over forty voting bills in the State House this session, the time is now to take a stand!
