This roundtable, held via Zoom and focusing on the Greater Concord region, is the first of nine such roundtable discussions to be held across the state, in partnership with each region’s young professionals network.
The Matters of State series will bring together each region’s legislators with their under-40 constituents to meet and discuss their region’s most pressing issues facing young people, as well as possible policy solutions.
The conversations will support and help inform the non-partisan, issues-based advocacy efforts Stay Work Play has engaged in since 2019, serving as a voice for the issues of critical importance to young New Hampshire residents.
“The Matters of State series will also help to establish and strengthen the relationships between legislators and their younger constituents,” said Stay Work Play Executive Director Will Stewart. “Likewise, legislators will hear first hand about the challenges facing their young constituents as they seek to stay in New Hampshire, as well as the need to create public policies that are friendlier to the young talent our state so desperately needs.”
The Matters of State series is open to anyone 40 and under who lives in New Hampshire. Additional sessions will be hosted in the Greater Manchester, Greater Nashua, Lakes Region, Monadnock, Mt. Washington Valley, North Country, Seacoast, and Upper Valley regions of the state. Space is limited and attendees are encouraged to learn more and register online at stayworkplay.org/mattersofstate.
