Community Rights Awareness Workshop in Newmarket, NH

what’s happening?

In the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, the Coakley Landfill Superfund Site, the Pease Air Force Base, and other industrial locations are leaking perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) and trichloroethylene (TCEs). The region’s water is threatened by these toxins, and community members are coming together to learn what they can do about it through the local group Mindful Mondays.

The New Hampshire Community Rights Network (NHCRN) is hosting the Community Rights Awareness Workshop as part of their Community Rights Awareness Campaign. The training explores the barriers residents face to creating healthy and sustainable communities – and what they can do about it using community rights.

In preparation for the workshop, Mindful Mondays is hosting a screening of We the People 2.0 – The Second American Revolution, on September 25th.
