PIRC collaborated with a wide range of university and state organizations in the development of uSafeNH, including the STEM Discovery Laboratory at UNH Manchester, the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, the NH SART Project, the NH Attorney General’s Office, and the NH Violence Against Women Campus Consortium.
