About No To Patterns™:

Seacoast organization, No To Patterns ™ was born out of necessity to address the lack of accommodations available to Black, African-American, and People of Color who live on the Seacoast. A determined mom, Courtney Daniel, wanted to create a community of resources for those who are considering moving to the Seacoast area and to nurture those who have called New Hampshire home.

What is the LIVE experience?

The LIVE Experience is an intimate quarterly discussion series that features passion-driven leaders from New Hampshire. You’ll join business owners, educators, students and supporters of change in one room for organic storytelling.

Our community resource hub serves as a vibrant platform, creating a space to share experiences and uplift individuals of color in their New Hampshire journey. Engage with the positivity of genuine community building for an inclusive and supportive environment. This event promises an enriching vibe where every voice adds to a positive and empowering experience.
