Policy Partners

Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2018!

Our powerful legislative advocacy program is developing the next generation of leaders while partnering families & 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 10 months (September – June). 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. Please email or call Jennifer Bertrand at 603-893-1299 for information about Policy Partners.
