Attorney Israel Piedra Moderates Statewide Diversity Panel Discussion

Last week, Attorney Israel Piedra served as the moderator for a panel discussion during Stay Work Play’s 2nd annual event “NH Next: A Summit for Young Changemakers.” The discussion, which took place online due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, was entitled “Diversity Matters.” The panel was composed of young leaders of color in New Hampshire, and discussed the experiences and challenges faced by people of color in the state.

The full panel discussion is available on YouTube and is embedded below.

Stay Work Play is a New Hampshire nonprofit, founded in 2009, dedicated to encouraging young New Hampshirites (and potential NH residents) in their 20s and 30s to stay, work, and play in the state. The organization seeks to remedy the oft-identified problem of NH natives leaving the state in their adult years rather than put down roots. It highlights New Hampshire’s many benefits, job opportunities, and attractions, and also advocates for important policy issues important to young persons, such as housing affordability, childcare, and education debt. Stay Work Play has previously highlighted Attorney Piedra’s work as a NH state representative.
