“There must exist a paradigm, a practical model for social change that includes an understanding of ways to transform consciousness that are linked to efforts to transform structures.”
bell hooks



Given the current state of affairs around race and race-relations in the United States, this is an opportunity for New Hampshire People of Color and their Allies to create a movement in the state where we can explore the impact of race on the quality of life for everyone (especially people of color) and transition into actions that will facilitate change.

The agenda for this event resulted from a planning meeting in March 2015 that outlined areas of interest, examined strategies for working collaboratively and explored factors that might have an impact on how we work together. Awareness, advocacy, youth empowerment and sustainability are important components of this initiative. Education, Criminal Justice and Political Action will be the main topic areas discussed. A series of subsequent events will be planned to keep the movement going.

Who should attend? Anyone who is willing to wake up/learn/reflect/teach/act in order to create change!

We are looking for more groups to join the movement. At this time our confirmed partners include: Black Women’s Health Project, Emerging Leaders in Communities of Color, NH Health & Equity Partnership, Keene State College, NH Multicultural Student Affairs Consortium , Rivier University, Saint Anselm College, Southern New Hampshire University, University of New Hampshire.
