Have you dreamed of making history? Of course, we all have. And now we have a chance to be a part of NH’s first day of giving - an opportunity to unite Granite Staters around causes in which they truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community.
From Granny D’s kitchen window to our office is an Ivy plant. It was planted, loved and cared for by Doris “Granny D” Haddock. The plant is growing in our office as we work hard to grow our democracy movement.
Can you feel it? The excitement surrounding our community? It's been building and building and building for weeks, and it's finally here: NH Gives Day is here!
Please consider a gift to Open Democracy and our NH Rebellion project. A little can go a long way when NH gets together and gives together on June 7th for #NHGives!
NH Rebellion is a project of Open Democracy is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization working to strengthening our democracy so that every voice is heard.Donate
Rebels, it's time to act again! Let the Presidential candidates know that you want them to work for you, not special interest Super PACs and billionaires. When you take the We the People Pledge, your signature will be delivered–in person–to the Presidential candidates before the NH Primary. Make your voice heard and sign the Pledge below today!
I call on all candidates to champion the We the People reform agenda to restore government “of, by, and for the people.”
GOAL: 6,264 signatures
- Expose secret donors and require full transparency
- Ban bribes from lobbyists and government contractors
- Ban Super PACs and overturn Citizens United
- Establish small-donor, citizen-funded elections
- End gerrymandering and modernize voter registration
- Close loopholes and enforce campaign finance laws
Only your name will be displayed on the NH Rebellion Pledge website. All other information is private.

New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation Presidential primary provides Granite Staters a unique opportunity to inject the root issue of corruption into the national debate by asking the candidates one simple question: "It is time for Congress to fix the way elections are funded, what solutions do you propose?" By doing this, we seek to make money in politics the definitive voting issue of the 2020 elections.Become a volunteer
