I am so pleased to announce that I I have received an endorsement from Rights & Democracy . In their first wave of endorsements, RAD included one candidate for governor, one candidate for Executive Council, one county-level candidate, and ten candidates for NH House of Representatives. It was an enormous honor to have been included in that first group of endorsements.
In addition to their endorsement of my candidacy, Rights & Democracy has selected me to represent them in a climate justice action event, which will be taking place very soon in Washington, DC. Keep watching for an update on this exciting story!
Thanks to the staff and members of RAD for their support and for their confidence that not only will I be right for Salem, that I am right for New Hampshire, and, with this upcoming trip, that I am right for our country.

About Rights and Democracy:
We believe rights and democracy are won when people come together to make their voices heard, so we’re building a strong movement and the people power necessary to win justice and improve the policies that affect us and our communities. From making sure that every worker earns a livable wage, to securing access to quality healthcare and education for all, we are active in a broad range of issues that people in New Hampshire face every day.
It’s evident that low-income and working families are not being represented by our elected officials. Rights & Democracy – New Hampshire was formed to build a movement across the region to counter the influence of money in politics and to hold elected officials accountable to upholding our rights and the democracy we live in.
Together, we create change through grassroots organizing, educating and mobilizing around the issues that affect our communities, recruiting and training candidates to run for office, and working through the political and electoral process to advance progressive policies that lead to happy, healthy, and just communities for everyone.
Our mission is to bring people together to take action to build healthy communities and make the values of our communities guide the policies of our government. We are building a popular movement to advance rights and build a real democracy. We work in partnership with community groups, progressive unions, faith communities, organizations fighting for human and civil rights, and environmental and climate action groups.
