NH Renews

A Green New Deal for New Hampshire

Overview

Policy change for 100% renewable energy

NH Renews is a new and growing campaign to address our region’s overlapping crises: mass unemployment, racial injustice, the coronavirus pandemic, and climate change. We’re developing policies and programs, conducting public education and building grassroots power to achieve a region-wide jobs guarantee, universal healthcare, affordable housing, racial justice, and climate action through state policy change inspired by the Green New Deal. We are working on the NH Renews campaign with a powerful coalition of grassroots organizations, labor unions, racial justice groups, frontline communities, and environmental advocates.

Our Campaign

350NH and our partners in the NH Renews Coalition are building public support for the Renew policy platform and holding our elected officials accountable to turn it into law. 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 and 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.
