At these events, she joined in honoring and celebrating Granite Staters and their contributions to the state.
33rd Annual Northeast POW/MIA Network Vigil
Senator Hassan attended the Northeast POW/MIA Network Vigil in Hesky Park in Meredith to honor prisoners of war as well as missing service members. The Senator thanked the group for hosting these important gatherings week after week and discussed the role that New Hampshire veterans played in working with her to return the POW/MIA flag atop the White House.
Queen City Pride Festival
On Saturday, Senator Hassan joined the 3rd annual Queen City Pride Festival, where she celebrated the right of all Granite Staters to fully participate in their communities, no matter who they love or how they identify.
Manchester Juneteenth Block Party
Senator Hassan also attended Manchester’s Juneteenth Block Party to commemorate the end of slavery in America. There, she spoke with Granite Staters about the strides that the country has made toward greater freedom, while also recognizing the work ahead. This year’s Juneteenth marked a significant step, as it was the first time that Juneteenth was recognized as a federal holiday.
