We Can’t Sit This Election Out! Volunteer Now!

We need all hands on deck for this election. The stakes are incredibly high in our federal races and may determine the very survival of our democratic institutions. But, let’s not forget that all public school funding in New Mexico flows from the State Legislature. It is imperative that we help labor-friendly supporters of public education not only maintain a majority in the NM Senate and House of Representatives but expand that margin. The way forward through this pandemic and economic crisis must not be an exercise in slashing budgets, but a commitment to invest in our schools and other public institutions. Let’s all do our part to make this happen. Below you will find a plethora of opportunities to get involved in this election. Let’s work together and fight for the future of our public schools and our democracy.
