The New Hampshire Liberty Alliance is a non-partisan coalition working to increase individual freedom in New Hampshire. It does this by monitoring bills in the legislative sessions and evaluating them based on their effects on civil liberties, personal responsibility, property rights, accountability, constitutionality, affordability, regulation, fiscal impact, and taxation. It supports bills which protect individual freedom of choice and personal responsibility, recognize the superiority of freedom over coercion, respect the citizen’s right of self-ownership, promote good government, and recognize the value of voluntary economic decisions. It opposes those which replace self-governance with interventionist ownership, assume agencies backed by force are superior to voluntary choices backed by personal accountability, and assume a better economy can be designed by a central authority that compels communities to pay for policies people do not willingly support. From this evaluation process NHLA publishes a weekly handout called The Gold Standard. NHLA distributes the handout to members of the House of Representatives prior to their vote. The Gold Standard reports then form the foundation for NHLA's annual Liberty Rating, a report card which scores New Hampshire legislators.

NHLA also endorses pro-liberty candidates and causes supports them with money and volunteers.
