14th Annual First Amendment Awards

The 14th Annual Nackey S. Loeb First Amendment Awards will be presented Nov. 17, 2016, at the Palace Theatre in Manchester.

This year’s Nackey S. Loeb First Amendment Award is a joint award, being shared by two citizen activists who spoke out for our right to know and government transparency.

The recipients are Timberlane Regional School Board member Donna Green of Sandown and the late David Pearl of Hooksett.

Donna Green,  a member of Right to Know NH, is sharing the award with David Pearl, a former Hooksett school board member, volunteer extraordinaire, and Right to Know advocate whose family will be accepting the award for him posthumously. The Ink and Quill award will be recognizing the lifetime achievement of Claire Ebel who led the ACLU NH for 30 years. 

It is a great opportunity to meet many people whose right to know issues often make the news as the reception is a popular gathering for journalists and other citizens who are prominent in free speech and right to know issues in New Hampshire.

The awards ceremony is being held at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, NH.  on Thursday Nov. 17.
