CCJ

CCJ stands for Citizens Concerned for Justice and is a committee formed with the PUUC and members of the Jaffrey Quaker Meeting after reading Michelle Alexander's book, The New Jim Crow. We have decided as a group to help women getting out of Cheshire prison with rides to and from court and continue to work on issues of poverty and inequality. Our next meeting is at the Quaker Meeting house on January 27th around noon when we will hear from the ex-Public Defender Behzad about bail reform.

 

Citizens Climate Lobby

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community. The local Monadnock Chapter meets monthly. See https://citizensclimatelobby.org.

 

Community Suppers

Every Wednesday evening volunteers prepare a spaghetti supper with all the fixings including homemade desserts which is offered free to the public. The cost of the supper is supported by the Church and by community donations.
