Today is a hard day for all of us who fight daily for progress and progressive values.
As Donald Trump is sworn in as President I wanted to send a personal note to tell you that we will march on.
We will continue the fight for progress as we have since ProgressNowNM was created to fight the conservative agenda in New Mexico 6 years ago – and together we will refuse to allow the progress we have achieved be undone.
Whether you are marching tomorrow in Washington, D.C., Ft. Sumner, TorC, Las Cruces, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Silver City or somewhere else around the country, we are with you and we won’t stop fighting for the progress we all believe in.
We ended last year setting new records for online progressive actions and website reads. You helped us create New Mexico’s most-read platform for progressive partners and news.
In 2015, we added new staff and a new office in Las Cruces and last year we added two new staffers to help other organizing groups statewide build their own power.
And you helped us start 2017 by organizing the resistance through New Mexico’s first Progressive Summit.
We need that infrastructure now more than ever. (Can you imagine what we’d do today if you hadn’t helped us build all of that then?)
Today, the Obama Administration ends but what does not end is our responsibility to stand up and fight for our values.
Our commitment to you and to making progress in New Mexico endures.
