Policy Partners

Policy Partners

Our powerful legislative advocacy program is developing the next generation of leaders and partnering families and individuals so together we can craft a better future for people who experience disability!

Have you ever wanted to participate in the legislative process and help sway opinions and votes on bills that will affect you & your family? Have you ever wanted to tell your Representatives how pending legislation will affect your family for better or worse and elicit their support? Is the New Hampshire legislative process a mystery to you?

Policy Partners is a leadership course that spans over 7 months (September – March). Participants are mentored individually by an experienced leader/advocate and also benefit from targeted training sessions lead by highly experienced local and national professional speakers on topics including relationship building, community organizing, communication, persuasion, issue framing, etc.

A limited number of participants will be accepted into this sought-after program this year – so apply early!  Due to the popularity of this program, we recommend submitting an application/nomination as soon as possible.
