Thousands of New Mexicans across the state have been involved with Retake our Democracy. A few weeks ago, Paul and Roxanne decided to shut their doors after years of guiding our activism on the NM Legislature and enjoy some quality of life in Portland with their family. Seeing a big hold in organizing for progressive legislation, two Indivisible groups decided to try and replicate their organizing work.
Taking a first step is notifying people who were already doing this work about upcoming legislation and creating Action Alerts informing them about bills that we support and oppose. In March, we will facilitate a full organizing meeting, inviting leaders of interested Progressive groups to define what 'Reboot our Democracy' can do to educate the public and activate our network on good and bad legislation.
If you were already part of the network for Retake our Democracy, you should already be seeing some Action Alerts. (Check your junk and spam folders if not.)
If you would like to receive these Action Alerts, email firstname.lastname@example.org

Indivisible Albuquerque has joined the global community in expressing our horror and grief at the loss of over 1,200 Israelis, Americans, and foreign citizens in Hamas’ horrific attacks on October 7, 2024 and echoed calls for all hostages to be released immediately.
To be clear: we condemn Hamas for it's attack on Israel. Also, we do not tolerate any anti semitism.
However, since the attack, the humanitarian situation in Gaza has deteriorated catastrophically with Israel’s ongoing bombardment and blockade of life-sustaining supplies like water, food, medicine, and power. The death toll continues to rise by the hour.
More than 23,000 are confirmed to have been killed in Gaza, with nearly half being children. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are now internally displaced.
This is an international crisis with a mounting death toll on the road to further escalation. The risks of the crisis expanding regionally grow by the hour. We are horrified by the situation and heartbroken at the human cost.
We call for a ceasefire on both sides, the release of all hostages and to stop all hostilities against civilians. All nations should cease the transportation and sale of weapons to either side of this conflict immediately.
At the meeting on July 3, 2023, we heard about a lawsuit filed on May 10, 2023.
See the website here - information below was taken from that site.
The Pollution Control Clause of the New Mexico Constitution (Art XX. Sec. 21), adopted in 1971:
The protection of the state's beautiful and healthful environment is hereby declared to be of fundamental importance to the public interest, health, safety and the general welfare. The legislature shall provide for control of pollution and control of despoilment of the air, water, and other natural resources of this state, consistent with the use and development of these resources for the maximum benefit of the people.
The pollution-control clause of the New Mexico Constitution was adopted more than 50 years ago. But since then the legislature has failed to put in place laws and programs to control pollution from oil and gas and has even exempted industry from key environmental-protection statutes. Putting polluters over people, it gives oil and gas a free pass to contaminate land, air and water, and damage Indigenous ancestral landscapes. By authorizing oil and gas extraction without adequate pollution controls, the state is violating its own Constitution.

Even given all of our progress to get good progressive legislation, this upcoming election in 2022 is going to be tough. Even statewide, progressives are facing strong challenges from more conservative democrats, who are mostly in the pockets of oil and gas.
In New Mexico, far right extremists are challenging our values in more races than ever. We must fight against those who want to rape our State's natural resources, ban books in schools, rewrite our nation's history, oppress our right to vote, spew disinformation and believe the BIG LIE!.
We want to elect progressives - and to do that we need you. We need your time, your money and your ideas.
Please consider donating to our statewide PAC to help elect progressives throughout the state. Donate monthly and help ensure our progressive candidate shave the money to fight back.

The National Infrastructure Bank bill calls for a $5 trillion public bank to pay for only US infrastructure projects. It's the only way to protect the US economy from recession, rebuild our national infrastructure and create 25 million new great paying jobs.

We believe healthcare is a human right. Health care tied to employers is a tired and ineffective model.
We know Universal health care is a long way off but we will continue to work for it.
