The Progressive Alliance (Center for Civic Policy, America Votes, ProgressNow New Mexico), in cooperation with Working Families NM, El Centro de Igualidad y Derechos, Equality NM, Olé, and more are planning an event you do not want to miss. January 20th, Albuquerque will welcome progressive voters, organizers, organizations, activists, speakers, and candidates from around the state, to the Albuquerque Convention Center.
This impact and action-oriented conference – is the first in a series of three that will happen in 2018. The collaborative efforts of those who have chosen to organize this event, come not a moment too soon for New Mexicans. New Mexicans are hard working, goal oriented and community-minded individuals that are continually interested and looking for ways to change our landscape, increase equity and access for our communities and families, and push New Mexico as a whole, forward. We realize there are two vital needs for this to occur – space and time.
2018 presents an incredible opportunity to do just that! We hope that you will join us form 8:30-4:30 on January 20th, to take action. There will be presentations by community organizations, elected officials, and engaged and concerned community activists and individuals.
Look forward to breakout sessions that touch on topics like “alternative” approaches to economic development, race class and gender in politics, tapping the permanent fund for early childhood education, approaching New Mexico’s opioid epidemic, and how to be a good neighbor to Albuquerque’s unsheltered populations, just to name a few.
Enjoy opening remarks by some of New Mexico’s progressive champions – leaders who have helped to assure accountability in our election processes, improve opportunities for our youth, and pushed for real growth of New Mexico’s economy. At lunch, you’ll hear from Gubernatorial candidates as to why they’re right for your vote and for our state. Needless to say, there will not be a dull moment on January 20th. Tickets will sell and sell fast – don’t wait to buy yours at the door.
We look forward to seeing you as we continue to push New Mexico in the direction of action, equity, and change.
