    2023 Democracy Dinner

    Please join us for the 2023 Democracy Dinner.

    Our special guest speaker will be Larry Lessig!  

    Larry is an American legal scholar and political activist. He is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and the former director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University Lessig was a candidate for the Democratic Party's nomination for president of the United States in the 2016 US presidential election but withdrew before the primaries.  He is the founder of Equal Citizens, a non-profit, non-partisan group that is "dedicated to reforms that will achieve citizen equality".

    A prolific author, Lessig has published several books on democracy.  His latest, They Don't Represent Us, he charts the way in which the fundamental institutions of our democracy, including especially our media, respond to narrow interests rather than to the needs and wishes of the nation’s citizenry. But the blame does not only lie with “them”—Washington’s politicians and power brokers, Lessig argues. The problem is also “us.” “We the people” are increasingly uninformed about the issues, while ubiquitous political polling exacerbates the problem, reflecting and normalizing our ignorance and feeding it back into the system as representative of our will.

    It will definitely be an engaging evening that you don't want to miss.  Get your tickets today!

    NH United: Bringing Granite Staters Together in Tilton

    Join Olivia Zink and Martha Madsen with The People in Tilton as part of our series of community conversations throughout the state.

    We are looking for NH residents from all walks of life in order to build trust and discover common ground as we share “hot topics” – issues that people see as critical to our future as individuals, as communities, as a state.

    Please come willing to listen to others and to share your thoughts on what you see as the largest issues facing the Granite State and your local community. We will seek common ground and consider how to address common concerns despite differences. 

    Refreshments will be provided!
