NH Listens Local People, Local Work, Local Change: Navigating Public Life in a Diverse Democracy 

Local People, Local Work, Local Change: Navigating Public Life in a Diverse Democracy–our speaker series that explores practitioners' journey working with communities to generate meaningful change. We will be joined Merle McGee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everyday Democracy. We'll be asking Merle about her experience running a national organization which centers racial equity and engaged, democratic communities. 

Merle brings over 25 years of experience in non-profit settings fighting alongside historically marginalized and excluded communities for dignity and racial, gender, and economic justice. Before joining Everyday Democracy in May 2022, Merle served as Chief Equity and Engagement Officer at Planned Parenthood of Greater New York, where she led organizational transformation through community engagement initiatives and by conceiving and implementing Reviving Racial, an initiative to reckon with the organization's history and build accountable relationships with communities of color.

Merle earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University, Tisch School of Arts, and Master of Science in Nonprofit Management from the New School.

This event will be online and in-person!
