Symposium Draws Energized Crowd Ready to Make NH a More Equitable State
More than 260 people attended the October 16th Inaugural Symposium on Race and Equity in New Hampshire. The event was a milestone following more than a decade of the Endowment's work on issues of health and race equity. A wait list of more than 80 was testament to the pent-up desire for a frank conversation about creating a more equitable New Hampshire for everyone.  

The Symposium exemplifies the Endowment's ongoing convening role, bringing together stakeholders to understand community needs and identify strategies to address these needs.  The Symposium, a year in the making, came at the request of community members across the Granite State who are working to make their communities welcoming and equitable places for all people choosing to live, learn, work and play here.

Sincere thanks to the amazing planners, speakers and facilitators and to the fired-up attendees who were engaged and ready for deep and meaningful discussions. Here's a glimpse of the day through photos. A report on the Symposium proceedings is expected to be finished by the end of the year and future action steps will soon be communicated.
