Granny D's Birthday Party

Granny D

Come Join the Celebration of Doris "Granny D" Haddock at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Nashua NH. This event will be a celebration of the life and legacy of Granny D. 

This event will also be the finale of the New Hampshire Rebellion. An event that begins in Mid January in the Northern part of the state, and ends in the Southern. Larry Lessig will be continuing Granny D's work and marching to end corruption. 

We are still working out the details so updates will be coming out periodically. Please come out and celebrate with us! 

Doris Haddock (January 24, 1910[1] – March 9, 2010[2]) was an American political activist from New Hampshire. Haddock achieved national fame when, between the ages of 88 and 90, starting on January 1, 1999, and culminating on February 29, 2000, she walked over 3,200 miles (5,100 km) across the continental United States to advocate for campaign finance reform. 

Haddock's walk across the country followed a southern route and took more than a year to complete, starting on January 1, 1999, in southern California and ending in Washington, D.C., on February 29, 2000.

Haddock requested a name change of her middle name to "Granny D," the name by which she had long been known. On August 19, 2004, Haddock's request was officially granted by Judge John Maher during a hearing at the Cheshire County probate court.
