Cecile Richards to Headline New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Annual McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner
MANCHESTER, NH – The New Hampshire Democratic Party announced today that Cecile Richards, Co-chair of American Bridge 21st Century and Former President of Planned Parenthood, will join Granite State Democrats in Manchester for the annual McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner on Friday, June 17th.
“I am thrilled to be heading back to New Hampshire for this incredible event and for the chance to meet Granite Staters from the North Country to the Seacoast, who are as committed to electing Democrats up and down the ballot as I am. Access to a safe and legal abortion has been a constitutional right for Americans for nearly 50 years in the United States, but the Republican Party has made eliminating abortion access a priority. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that we come together to help elect Democrats who are going to protect reproductive health care at every level,“ said Cecile Richards.
The McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner is one of New Hampshire’s premier political events, and honors the work of two of the most influential leaders in NHDP history — Senators Tom McIntyre and Jeanne Shaheen. This year’s dinner will feature members of New Hampshire’s Federal Delegation, State Legislative Leaders, and candidates for state office, including gubernatorial candidate Dr. Tom Sherman.
“It is an honor to welcome Cecile Richards back to the Granite State. She is an incredible leader, and Granite Staters have greatly benefited from her long history of advocacy and activism. We’re so grateful that she is willing to join us for this incredible event, and for all the work she has done and continues to do,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley.
“I am looking forward to hearing from Cecile Richards as well as so many of our exceptional Granite State Democratic leaders. The dinner promises to be a fun and memorable evening, celebrating our massive victories already this cycle, keeping the momentum going, and building the resources needed to elect Granite State Democrats up and down the ballot this November,” said NHDP 1st Vice Chair Senator Martha Fuller Clark.
