Local advocates from Concord, Nashua, Goffstown, Bedford, Freedom, Newport, Claremont and Durham, including students from the University of New Hampshire, Colby-Sawyer College, Saint Anselm College and local high schools traveled to Washington, D.C. from March 18 to 20 to participate in Save the Children and Save the Children Action Network’s annual Advocacy Summit, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson.

They joined hundreds of advocates from across the country to attend in-depth advocacy trainings and urge lawmakers from both parties to make key investments in early childhood education in the U.S. and maternal, newborn and child survival programs overseas.
