New Hampshire

Research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development. However, New Hampshire is the only state in New England without state-funded preschool.

We are working to elect candidates who are committed to expanding access to high-quality early learning programs in the Granite State.

New Hampshire activists use their voices in a number of ways! Our activists post information and actions to their social media pages, staff booths at community events, meet with elected officials and even ask presidential candidates questions about how they would work to help children.

There are countless ways you can use your voice to advocate for children. Plus, joining in our work will positively impact your life as well as the lives of children in New Hampshire and beyond.
