AFSC's New Hampshire "State House Watch" newsletter is published weekly during legislative sessions (and occasionally at other times of the year) to bring you information about matters being discussed in Concord including housing, immigration, and labor rights. We also follow the state budget and tax system, voting rights, corrections policy, and more. For an email subscription, fill out our sign up form here.

We also have a weekly radio show on Mondays from 5:00 to 6:00 PM, which is re-broadcast on Tuesdays from 8:00 to 9:00 AM. You can listen to the livestream online or on WNHN, 94.7 FM radio in Concord. You can also download a podcast of any of our earlier shows.
