Our First Big Victory: New Hampshire
When we launched 1776 Action in March, our first move was to find a fight and jump in. No longer would the attempted radicalization of K-12 classrooms go unanswered.
After some parents reached out to share their horror stories, and a legislative fight was just beginning over a bill to ban Critical Race Theory-inspired curriculum from its schools, we chose New Hampshire as our first stand.
Immediately – and up through last week – we started running statewide radio and TV ads, along with an aggressive text message campaign that directly reached over 120,000 voters. That’s in addition to regular news coverage and a Union Leader op-ed by one of our key supporters, Newt Gingrich.
