Enough is enough – a call to end sexual violence

Our political world is one of explicit and implicit power differentials. We stand together to call an end to a culture that supports men using power and privilege in political environments to harass, intimidate, and sexually violate women and LGTBQ people. Stand with us, sign the petition below. 

Smiling Gov. Martinez poses to accept award for… Putting corporations over people 

Governor Martinez is the head honcho of the National Republican Governor’s Association and this week she brought her fellow GOP governors (and some very well connected lobbyists and conservative donors) to the swanky Tamaya resort at Santa Ana. And this time, before they filled up their room block at the hotel, some local progressive families and activists got a room. 

So, of course, things got fun!  
Their room reservations got them a pass to get through the line of big black SUVs and burly security officers. Organizers with the Southwest Organizing Project and OLÈ bumped into Governor Martinez and presented her with a very special award – and she posed for a picture!   https://twitter.com/olenewmexico/status/732589971555524609 
Hats off to the SWOPistas and OLÈ!
