NH Grassroots Newsletter


Dear Friend,

We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable Fourth of July and are back from the break ready to elect Democrats because we have a lot of work to do!

In the past few weeks we’ve had highs and lows. We found out that President Trump would get to pick another Supreme Court Justice with Anthony Kennedy’s retirement and we’ve seen images and heard stories of children locked up in cages. This comes in addition to Governor Sununu vetoing bills that would have saved three biomass companies, all of which are now planning on closing, because that’s what his corporate donors wanted.

But, despite these tough times, Democrats have been active and engaged like never before. We had an incredible first Day of Action where volunteers laid the groundwork for an eventual sweep in the coming elections. We also saw Granite Staters come together to protest Trump’s horrific immigration policies and we celebrated Pride in Nashua.

Trump and Sununu will keep pushing their radical agendas whenever possible, so the best thing for us to do is to get off the sidelines and elect Democrats!

Supporter Housing

The NHDP is gearing up for our 2018 Coordinated Campaign! We are bringing on staff and volunteers to support our Town and County committees to turn out the vote in November. We need your help finding places for them to stay. Whether it is for a week or through election day – any little bit helps.
