How We Win

350NH and our core partners in the state are working to adapt the Renew platform to fit our communities’ specific needs and to win this policy change in NH. Our sister organization 350NH Action will be working to elect candidates who support this ambitious vision.

In order to win the NH Renews policy platform in our state, we need mass mobilization, community education, and political will to get it done. Our job is to build grassroots support for these policies to put pressure on our elected officials to adopt them.

Petition

To: NH State Senators and Representatives

In the midst of the pandemic, New Hampshire faces some of the largest crises the region & nation have ever seen: historic unemployment, inaction on racial justice, and the ever-escalating climate crisis.

Too many of our leaders are failing us, at the federal and state levels. We need a broad and united front to advance solutions that center those left behind in our communities and that take climate change seriously. The policy platform of NH Renews includes issues such as Housing, Healthcare, Food Access, Transportation, Clean air & water, and Energy. We must address all of these in order to combat the climate crisis and build a more just New Hampshire. I urge you to endorse the platform of NH Renews, and work with Granite Staters directly to create the solutions we need to address the crises we face.
