Team & Leaders

Based in Concord, New Hampshire, the NH Rebellion is part of Open Democracy and works closely with reform-minded citizens and groups on both the Right and Left to stop the corrupting influence of big-money in politics.

Meet the Open Democracy team and board

NH Rebellion is supported by many leading civic and business leaders from across the political spectrum in order to restore political equality for all and an open, honest, and trusted government "of, by, and for the people", free from the corruption of big-money politics. Leaders write letters and op-eds; conduct interviews and candidate conversations; hold house parties and special events; speak at Rotaries, libraries, and town halls.
