New Hampshire

After years of work by advocates, supporters in New Hampshire and coalition partners, Governor Chris Sununu signed bipartisan legislation last year that ensures more kids in the Granite State will have access to day kindergarten. We are continuing to push for full funding and increased access to high-quality early education, including full-day kindergarten, for all children in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire activists use their voices in a number of ways! Our activists post information and actions to their social media pages, staff booths at community events, meet with elected officials and even ask presidential candidates questions about how they would work to help children.

There are countless ways you can use your voice to advocate for children. Joining our work will positively impact the lives of kids in New Hampshire and beyond.
