New Mexico voters elected Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump in 2016. But that hasn’t stopped New Mexico’s lone Pro-Trump Congressman, Steve Pearce, from voting with Donald Trump on everything from internet privacy to eliminating healthcare.

Veterans Might Have to Remember What Healthcare was like…

As Americans, we are guaranteed the opportunity to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and those rights are bravely defended by those wearing the uniforms of our armed service.

On this Memorial Day, we are taking the time to put a lens on what recent decisions by the Trump administration mean for those who protect and serve our country. Another fight is upon us all as we experience the impact of sweeping decisions made by the current administration under the hand of President Donald Trump.

The Seeds of Rural Resilience: A Summit on Community Food Sovereignty and Regenerative Agriculture

We invite all Rural Coalition members, farmers, ranchers, agency partners, and our friends working toward sustainable agriculture to explore how contemporary approaches to such challenges as climate change, sustainable livestock, local food, organic agriculture, fisheries, food safety, and drought intersect with holistic models emerging in rural communities around community food sovereignty and regenerative agriculture. Our Seeds of Rural Resilience Summit, hosted by the Town of Atrisco Land Grant, a traditional, selfgoverning farm and ranch community, will emphasize innovation, collaboration, and intergenerational knowledge transfer. We will explore how historical and traditional knowledge related to regenerative agricultural practices, especially acequia culture, land tenure, and conservation, relate to farm programs or could inform program adjustments and changes to secure more holistic and durable results.
