For the People of New Hampshire, by the People of New Hampshire
A petition is demanding that our Executive Director be expelled from a school board over her Christian beliefs
As you may have seen in the media, an online petition is currently demanding that our Executive Director, Shannon McGinley, be removed from the Board of Trustees of a private school over her Catholic beliefs on gender, sexuality, and marriage.
We are very close to a Senate vote on HB 625, a bill that would put protections in place to preserve the life of preborn children who are at least 24 weeks gestational age. Support is growing, but we are also facing determined opposition. HB 625-FN is a carefully crafted and worded bill representing the combined efforts of legislators and legal scholars, including two proposed amendments to strengthen it – the Birdsell and French amendments – which Cornerstone supports.
While we at Cornerstone are a specifically Christian organization, we promote the religious and civil liberties of all Granite Staters, including through our promotion of Rep. Jim Kofalt’s Bill HB 440—the Civil Liberties Defense Act. We’ve recently learned that Rep. Kofalt’s bill is being falsely identified by out-of-state progressive activists as part of “Project Blitz,” a supposed “Christian nationalist” interstate conspiracy.

Cornerstone Policy Research (501c3) was founded in 2000 by Karen Testerman, who became Cornerstone’s first executive director. Active in civic life, Karen had met many New Hampshire neighbors who shared her deep faith in God and her dedication to responsible citizenship. She launched Cornerstone Policy Research to help defend, promote, and protect families, faith and freedom in New Hampshire. Five years later, Cornerstone Action (501c4) was established as Cornerstone’s political advocacy division.
With dynamic and committed leadership from board members and directors, Cornerstone has become a respected New Hampshire resource for fact-based information on issues including the right to life, religious liberty, family life, and education. As Cornerstone prepares to enter its third decade, its mission statement stays true to its founder’s vision: Cornerstone is dedicated to a New Hampshire where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.
