RETAKE OUR DEMOCRACY ZOOMINAR:
Tuesday, August 4. NM State Election Strategies: Who Can Win, Who Needs a Push and What YOU Can Do. Panelists include: Eric Griego, Working Families Party of NM, Andrea Serrano, Olé and representatives from Indivisible, Nasty Women and other grassroots groups that have teams working on campaigns. Find out key races where wins are possible and races where good Democrat incumbents face stiff challenges. Find out the nuances involved in organizing successful campaigns and the many ways in which you can support a campaign. There is far more to be done besides making calls and writing letters.
We have a unique opportunity in 2021, a Democratic Governor, a strongly progressive House and potentially a completely transformed Senate. Now we need to finish the job and make great candidates into great legislators.
Find out how we can create a Legislature ready to pass a Public Bank, Health Security, Tax Reform, Funding for Early Childhood, and to pave the way for a just transition in NM.This Zoom will reach capacity very early, so register now by clicking here.
Please don’t just hope that progressives will win and the lives of New Mexicans will improve. Hope is good, but action is better. Phone calls and letters can have a huge impact on election results. Please get involved today. It’s time for all of us to step up and take action. The results of the 2020 elections are critical to survival of our democracy!
Please join ACLU of New Mexico staff with two very special guests for a town hall discussion around policing policy, reform and action we’re taking here in New Mexico and across the country. ACLU-NM’s Peter Simonson and Barron Jones will be joined by ACLU’s National Policing Policy Advisor Paige Fernandez and Elaine Maestas, whose sister was shot and killed by Bernalillo County deputies one year ago and who has become a leading advocate for improved law enforcement transparency and accountability.
