We’re Mobilizing Granite Staters to Be the Voice for Kids

People in New Hampshire overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

After years of work by advocates, supporters in New Hampshire and coalition partners, Governor Chris Sununu signed bipartisan legislation in 2017 that ensures more kids in the Granite State will have access to day kindergarten. In 2022, we successfully advocated for legislation that will direct state agencies to develop a plan to improve access to high-quality child care.

We’re committed to ensuring all New Hampshire’s children in succeed in school and life.
