What comes once a year & is really RAD?


What could be better than a room full of people who care about making change in their communities?

Join Rights & Democracy (RAD) and the Monadnock (NH) Progressive Alliance (MPA) for the bistate RAD Member Assembly and MPA People Power Summit on Saturday, September 22!

We’ll be gathering at the Keene Middle School, in Keene, NH, and everyone who believes in our work is welcome, whether or not you are a current member.

Together, we will:

  • Reflect on the work we’ve done in the past year in New Hampshire and Vermont;
  • Celebrate legislative, community, and electoral victories; and,
  • Give awards to members who have been integral in building our movement.

RAD members will get to vote for our board leadership, however everyone who attends can:

  • Caucus by state to guide our upcoming work in preparation for the 2020 elections; and,
  • Attend two workshop blocks related to skill building and action strategies.

Keep watch in your inbox and on RAD’s social media for details about these amazing workshops and other special details about this important annual assembly.
