New Hampshire Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice

Start: Saturday, September 08, 201811:00 AM

On September 8, hundreds of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world to demand a just and fair transition for all in New Hampshire to enjoy the benefits of clean energy with safe jobs, protected wildlife, efficient housing, healthy air, and a better future than what we inherited from our elders.

This is a peaceful, family friendly event with speakers, experts, organizations, decision makers, and YOU!

Speakers will start at the gazebo in Central Square at 11 a.m. until 12 p.m.

An hour of speakers at Central Square will be followed by an afternoon with local favorite Murphy’s Blues Band at Railroad Square setting the mood for a speakers’ tent and information tables. Ice cream and treats will be provided by sponsors Stonyfield Farms and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream – businesses that have taken the movement to their factory floors and business principals.
