NASHUA – On Monday, Maggie Hassan will highlight her plans to build a brighter future for New Hampshire’s children during two stops in Nashua.
In the morning, Hassan will tour the Nashua Child Advocacy Center on Wellman Avenue and meet with members of the Granite State Children’s Alliance. Child Advocacy Centers are community partnerships dedicated to a coordinated multi-disciplinary team approach for protecting children in child abuse cases and providing social services to child victims.
Later, Hassan will be joined by U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen for a visit to Girls Incorporated of New Hampshire on Burke Street, where they will take questions as part of Girls Inc.’s “She Votes” program, which educates young women about the political process. Girls Inc. works to help girls achieve their personal best through one-on-one attention, leadership development, a talented staff and volunteers, a wide range of enrichment programs, and a caring family environment.
Hassan is focused on helping children succeed, especially though a strong public education system. As a leader in the State Senate, Hassan helped bring public kindergarten to every New Hampshire community, and she opposes efforts to cut education and divert public dollars to private and religious schools with no accountability.
