New Hampshire Listens

New Hampshire Listens is a civic engagement initiative of the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire. In the same way that we need the physical infrastructure of roads, bridges, and buildings, we need to build, strengthen, and sustain civic infrastructure to support a strong democracy. Our mission is to bring people together to create communities that work for everyone.

NH Listens facilitated the first NH Beverage Alcohol Summit, bringing together stakeholders to engage in a unique statewide dialogue. Learn more in this 2-minute video.
