OUR STORY

This Initiative was founded in response to the BLM movements of 2020. It began with a petition to end the white washed history curriculum in New Hampshire. Recognizing the breadth of systemic racism across the state, the mission of this initiative became much broader. Our mission is to serve as a non-partisan initiative to understand and undo the effects of systemic racism in the New Hampshire public school system.

OUR VALUE

As recent alumi from the Nashua public schools system, we speak from the experience. Only a few years out of our New Hampshire public education, we recognize the challenges facing students today. We can connect with young voices across the state and empower them to be advocates for change.
