Building Movements for Change: Stories of Challenge and Success

Co-hosted by Global Citizens Circle, Social Change Initiative & Southern New Hampshire University

Thursday May 30th, Discussion begins at 4 PM

Listen, Learn, and Lead

For over four decades, Global Citizens Circle has brought together diverse thinkers – from world leaders to local activists – for challenging dialogue to stimulate meaningful and enduring resolution of our world’s pressing concerns. Participate in a moderated conversation, “Building Movements for Change: Stories of Challenge and Success,” drawing on questions and comments from online and in person. 

The Circle is not a typical event. Our special participants will join in a moderated conversation that involves highly interactive dialogue among everyone

We want you to know about our next Circle when it is scheduled. Some will join us in person. Nominate yourself or someone you think can contribute. 

If you can’t attend in person, we welcome you to join via livestream. We will accept questions from the online audience via Twitter. Our Twitter handle is @citizens_circle and we are using the hashtag #activismthatworks. Please sign up below.

NH PoutineFest 2019

Saturday, June 22nd, 11:30 AM- 4:30 PM

221 Daniel Webster Highway, Merrimack, NH 03054

TICKETS ON SALE MARCH 23RD AT 10 AM!


***Tickets On Sale 3/23/19 at 10 AM***

This festival is New England’s original celebration of the French-Canadian classic, poutine! Restaurants from all over New England will entice you with their spin on this Québécois treasure.

All attendees have the opportunity to sample poutine (a healthy portion) from our participating restaurants! Our restaurants will also be competing against each other for the “Best Poutine Of The Fest,” and only one will get to raise the Ceinture de Championnat/Championship Belt.

This year’s event takes place on the grounds at the Budweiser Brewery in Merrimack, NH! Merrimack is located less than an hour from Boston and is fifteen minutes from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

We will have bands, great beer, games, children’s activities and some phenomenal poutine. Yes, you read that right…this year’s event is kid friendly. We’ll do our best to keep your kiddos busy with activities. Maybe they’ll pick up some French?

We have also invited several food trucks to supplement your poutine intake.

Are you a vendor or food truck interested in participating in the largest poutine bash in the United States? Give us a shout poutinefest@facnh.com!

This event is hosted by the the Franco-American Centre of New Hampshire, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Manchester, NH. All proceeds help support the Centre’s mission of preserving French language, culture, and heritage in New Hampshire and beyond.

If you plan on attending and would like to vote on the week's possible topics, send our Director an email at skbutzel@cityofportsmouth, and he will send you a link to the webpage where you can vote. The list of topics is posted each Wednesday afternoon and voting concludes that Friday afternoon. At that point, the Director will send out an email to the group letting them know the two selected topics, and a list of links to suggested articles.

Where do we get our possible topics and a set of suggested articles from each week? From the World Affairs Council of America's Weekly World News Update webpage.
