2021 Leg Campaign Launch *events this weekend

VIEW FULL UPDATE HERE


Dear Friend,

Wow! The first week of January 2021 has been a tumultuous one. We are relieved to hear that our Senators and Representatives are safe. Our hearts go out to those in DC who may have been in the crossfire (DC residents, essential workers in the Capitol) or targeted by the white supremacists and fascists. This terrible event is not surprising. We must continue to build with our community and elevate consciousness. Check out this Community Defense video from Pueblo Action Alliance (from August).

We are continuing to build our Legislative Agenda, Strategy and Organizing efforts! Check out two events below that will give you an opportunity to learn about important efforts happening during the session. Want to be active during the session? Sign up for our Legislative Action list - this list is specifically for the session. We will be sending weekly announcements & action items to this list. Not sure how active you want to be yet? No worries, we'll add you to our action list & you can decide.

SIGN UP HERE

Free Them All New Mexico Coalition's Voices Behind the Walls event on 1/8 at 5:30 pm. Hear from two community members who are currently inside the facilities as well as Clifton White, who was released in late 2020 after being held by the state as a political prisoner. They're also going to share information on bills to decarcerate and dismantle State Violence and the Prison Industrial Complex (that we are supporting), as well as legislative bills we should resist.
