  • The purpose of this collaborative conversation is simple and important: We need and want your deep engagement in the issues and opportunities surrounding the present and future of advocacy. What are the issues and opportunities for increased civic engagement that you care about? What are your ideas, questions, recommendations, concerns, needs, and desires for resolution and future directions? Let’s talk about how we can improve our state and increase access to the policymaking process for all Granite Staters. For more information about Open Spaces Technology click here.
