Now that we have turned our state government green, we have the most promising opportunity in a generation to pass bold, humanity- and wildlife-saving policies.
You are central to this issue!
The urgency couldn’t be greater. A deeply committed alliance of environmental, heath, community, and social justice organizations has come together in the effort to pass game-changing legislation that the health of our planet demands, now!
Your advocacy during and leading up to the 2019 NM legislative session can make the difference between a genuinely progressive and effective environmental platform or more of the same. This is our chance to enact state-level protections that counteract those being stripped by the Trump administration.
Commit to the efforts by attending local grassroots lobby events throughout the state, including:
Lobby training – early January, throughout the state (see below)
Clean Energy Conference – January 28 (agenda)
Clean Energy Lobby Day – January 29, featuring Laura Paskus, a key New Mexico environmental reporter, and Destiny Watford, a Goldman Environmental Prize winner who in high school led the fight to stop a trash burning incinerator in her community.

Our alliance is developing advocacy teams to empower members and give our bold agenda the best chance of success.
