The REaL Data Work Group strives to increase the capacity in NH for the collection of high quality Race, Ethnicity and Language (REaL) data across all systems at the state and local level to identify disparities and promote utilization of data to inform improvements, policies and procedures.

Even before we had an entity called the “Health and Equity Partnership”, partners have been working to raise awareness of the importance of accurate REaL data collection. 

This toolkit is designed to help the members of the Partnership learn about social media and its uses, the different platforms, best practices, and how to manage the platforms that the Partnership currently uses.

Arnie Alpert, recipient of a ACLU of NH Bill of Rights Award, October 4, 2015. (photo credit: NH ACLU, from In the midst of a blizzard in January 1983, Arnie Alpert walked down the stairs and took a step into the parish hall at Brookside Congregational Church in Manchester. As he recounted in a story for True Tales Live in Portsmouth, it was a step that changed his life.

The event was Manchester’s first celebration of Martin Luther King Day, organized by the Manchester NAACP, the Greater Manchester Black Scholarship Foundation, and the Manchester YWCA. It was there, Arnie recalls, that he met Lionel Johnson, Sandy Hicks, Inez Bishop, Bruce Bynum, people who would have had a lasting impact on him. And it was there that he began the work that would occupy much of his time until 1999, coordinating a campaign for the state of New Hampshire to recognize Dr. King’s birthday with an official holiday.
