In Our Backyard
Sara Plourde

NHPR's In Our Backyard project is exploring the state of local democracy and dialogue across New Hampshire, in town meeting season and beyond.

We're looking at how rising polarization, misinformation and disinformation is shaping debates on all kinds of local issues. But we're also trying to share stories about how people across the state are trying to build connections and common ground with their neighbors in the current political moment.

Your voice is an essential part of this reporting. If you'd like to share your thoughts about local democracy or civic engagement in New Hampshire, please email us at, or leave us a voicemail at 603-513-7790. Click here to learn more about how to get involved.
