Policy Partners

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 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.

Due to the popularity of this program, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2019-20 Policy Partners Session.  The 2020-21 application and nomination forms will be available in June 2020.  In the meantime, please call (603) 893-1299 or email Jennifer Bertrand for more informaation.
