In order to ensure community health and safety while the world remains in flux, after consultations and careful consideration, the board and staff have decided that WFC will not open this summer. We ask for your solidarity, patience, and support as we protect and care for each other and our beloved place on the planet.
In person programs are cancelled for now. We are working to schedule some online programming and alternatives for supporting our community and promoting peace and justice.

Ranked Choice Voting Explained
13 November , 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ranked choice voting (RCV) can make democracy more fair and functional. It works in a variety of contexts. It is a simple change that can have a big impact. Howard Fain*, Deputy Director of Policy and Research, Voter Choice for Massachusetts, will be speaking about how RCV works, how it can improve our democracy and where it stands in NH.
With ranked choice voting, voters can rank as many candidates as they want in order of choice. Candidates do best when they attract a strong core of first-choice support while also reaching out for second and even third choices. When used as an “instant runoff” to elect a single candidate like a mayor or a governor, RCV can help elect a candidate that better reflects the support of a majority of voters. When used as a form of fair representation voting to elect more than one candidate like a city council, state legislature or even Congress, RCV can help to more fairly represent the full spectrum of voters.
