Newmarket, NH, community members are organizing to protect groundwater, waterways, and estuaries with their Freedom from Chemical Trespass ordinance drafted with CELDF. As part of their grassroots organizing and education, they are hosting the Daniel Pennock Democracy School, which teaches residents and activists how to reframe exhausting and often discouraging single issue work (such as opposing fracking, pipelines, GMOs, etc.) in a way that they can confront corporate control and state preemption on a powerful single front: people’s inalienable rights. Educating their community is one of the most powerful steps towards change they can make.
