YUCCA TRAVELS TO NEW YORK DEMANDING THE END OF FOSSIL FUELS
We're very grateful to have been part of the NM Delegation of over 50 Indigenous, youth, frontline, and environmental organizers bringing our NM Declaration and demands for justice to the UN, to the streets of NY, to the press, and to the movement. The Source journalists who spent the day with us during our NM Climate Strike a week ago did a great job making the connections in their article below.

Thank you to all that helped rally outside the Capitol, and joined in on our sit-in at the Governor's Office on Thursday, Feb 23 as we demonstrated our strong opposition to bills that will continue to cause irreparable harm to New Mexico communities. There is still much to do as we continue to fight against extractive legislation.

YUCCA YOUTH BLOCK TRAFFIC & ENTRANCE TO
THE OIL & GAS ASSOCIATION’S ANNUAL MEETING
Over fifty youth from around the state took the day off of school today to protest the annual New Mexico Oil and Gas Association (NMOGA) gathering. Organized by YUCCA, young Indigenous, POC, and allied youth and adults marched and rallied during the opening session of the annual NMOGA Meeting to demand an end to oil and gas extraction and exploitation that puts fossil fuel profits over the health, safety, and futures of New Mexicans. Speakers from YUCCA, Pueblo Action Alliance, and K’owa Collective were joined by Indigenous Water Protectors who traveled from Diné Nation for the action.
The protesters blocked traffic and blocked the entrance of the hotel - calling for corporate accountability for the ways in which oil and gas has burned New Mexico - literally and figuratively.
