The American Friends Service Committee's New Hampshire Program will host its annual gathering on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Join us online for Journey to Abolition: Love as the Roadmap Toward Justice & Liberation, a fall fundraising gathering to celebrate community and deepen our work to end systems of oppression. This year we are excited to host this event with a special guest, scholar-activist Nyle Fort.

The AFSC’s New Hampshire Program works with individuals, partner groups and coalitions to address the causes and effects of injustice in the state, with a special emphasis on promoting economic justice and the rights and well-being of immigrants, workers and prisoners; strengthening the safety net for low-income people; ending systems of state violence; developing new leaders and supporting community-led initiatives for social change; and supporting New Hampshire people to be active in policy advocacy. To support movement building, AFSC-NH engages in a variety of coordinated strategies to vitalize and nourish a growing movement of diverse people calling for social, racial and economic justice.
