New Hampshire citizens rank relatively high on several key indicators of civic health, including voter turnout, engagement at public meetings, and levels of education. However, New Hampshire ranks last in the nation when it comes to donations to charitable organizations, and is on the decline for volunteerism. Most vexing is that fewer citizens feel New Hampshire is headed in the right direction.
The Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire has published the New Hampshire Civic Health Index with some fascinating findings on civic health in our state, and its author, Carsey Institute Interim Director, Bruce Mallory, will brief the Forum on his findings and the implications for economic and social policies.
Panelists responding to his findings include the head of New Hampshire’s leading charitable organization, the founder of American Demographics magazine and author of the book, Communities & Consequences, and a community leader working to engage her fellow residents on a key civic issue.
