Stay MWV to co-host event focused on challenges facing region’s young people
Stay Work Play New Hampshire, in partnership with Stay MWV, will kick off its Policy & Pints Pop-Up series at 5:30pm, Monday, September 16, at Tuckerman Brewing Company in Conway.
Aimed at helping to inform Stay Work Play’s 2020 legislative advocacy efforts, the Policy & Pints Pop-Up series will bring together young people, aged 21-39, in the various regions of the state to discuss the issues most impacting their decisions to stay in, or leave, New Hampshire as a whole, as well as the specific regions in which they live and work.
In addition to discussing the challenges, these roundtable discussions will also focus on potential policy solutions for which the organization might advocate at the state capitol, Stay Work Play Executive Director Will Stewart said.
“We are excited to begin the Policy & Pints Pop-Up series in the Mt. Washington Valley,” Stewart said. “While sharing many of the same challenges of the state as a whole, the region also has its own unique challenges, which we look forward to learning more about.”
Stay Work Play began a non-partisan, issues-based advocacy program in Concord during the 2019 legislative session. The organization focused its advocacy efforts on three key issues: housing affordability, education debt, and protecting New Hampshire’s outdoor recreation amenities.
The September 16 Policy & Pints Pop-Up series event is open to anyone ages 21-39 who lives or works in the Mt. Washington Valley. Space is limited and attendees are encouraged to RSVP online at stayworkplay.org/policy-and-pints.
