The New Hampshire Liberty Alliance (NHLA) is a nonpartisan, libertarian coalition in New Hampshire. The organization supports libertarian candidates for state and local offices, and other libertarian causes and organizations.[1]

Just before the November elections in 2006, the New Hampshire Union Leader editor wrote, "if New Hampshire is to remain the live free or die state, we have to continue voting for freedom and against government coercion." The editor wrote, "we are not with the Alliance on every single issue, but their scorecard is a good proxy for determining who is a friend or foe of personal freedoms" about the NHLA in the same editorial.[2]

The Liberty Alliance is not part of the Free State Project, but has participated in that group's annual New Hampshire Liberty Forum.[3]

Liberty Dinner[edit]

The Liberty Alliances gives an annual "Legislator of the Year" award to a member of the New Hampshire State Legislature. The Liberty Alliance also gives out an annual "Activist of the Year" award. The NHLA hosts an annual Liberty Dinner at which these awards are given. Additionally, the yearly Liberty Rating, a report card based on votes by legislators and the impact of the votes on New Hampshire, is unveiled at the Liberty Dinner.

Past speakers at the Liberty Dinner have included Healing Our World author and 2008 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Dr. Mary Ruwart in 2015[4] New Hampshire Union Leader publisher Joe McQuaid,[5] and New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner.[6]
