New Hampshire State Representatives and FGM activists, including our own James Middlebrook, on March 20th attended the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on HB1739 – An Act Prohibiting Female Genital Mutilation – to lend their support. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Victoria Sullivan, brings New Hampshire one step closer to protecting at-risk girls from FGM.

The bill, which has already passed the House, has a few more hurdles to jump before it can become law. We will continue supporting this bill until it is signed into law. Join us! Contact your Senators in New Hampshire and tell them you support HB1739 here:
