Looking Ahead

Juneteenth Tabling

Voter Registrars Needed

With city elections approaching in November, there is a need to register new voters and re-register voters who have changed their name or address. The Juneteenth weekend is coming up fast and provides a good opportunity to set up a NAACP table and register those who attend events.

Information on event schedules and locations will be determined soon. If you are a trained certified Voter Registrar, and would be willing to help out, please contact Charles Powell (crpowell5@gmail) and provide an idea of your general availability for Friday, June 18 / Saturday, June 19 / Sunday, June 20.

Special Election Win!

Rep. Stansbury’s Landslide Victory – Good News for NM and the US

At the close of the June 1 Special Election, Melanie Stansbury had captured 60 percent of the vote to replace Deb Haaland as our CD1 voice in the US Congress, while her Republican opponent, Mark Moores, had won only 36 percent.

Moores made his campaign almost entirely about crime, and that issue alone wasn’t sufficient to bring him success. His fear-mongering fell flat and Rep. Stansbury carried the day by making clear to voters her support for positive change – including police reform, economic and racial equality, and a $15 minimum wage.

Congratulations to Melanie — and many thanks to all the Bernalillo County Democrats who worked hard for her victory!

Democratic vision,
Democratic values

We stand with Democrats across New Mexico in our belief that every person matters. We believe all citizens should have an equal voice in how we as a people are governed, without undue influence by rich and powerful special interests.

We work for the 99%, and affirm the ties that bind us together as one human family.

These beliefs and many more important principles are presented in the Platform of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, which we fully support.

Civil Rights
We acknowledge the rights of all persons to be treated equally, with dignity and respect, regardless of race, color, creed, gender identity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, physical ability, cognitive ability, or age.
Education
Democrats believe that an educated populace is the cornerstone of sustainable democracy and economic prosperity.

Affordable, high-quality pre-K through college education is a basic right.
Healthcare
Healthcare is a fundamental human right.

Regardless of their circumstances, everyone in New Mexico and the U.S. should have access to comprehensive, affordable, high-quality health care.

Services must include comprehensive behavioral health services, reproductive care, access to birth control, quality prenatal and postpartum care, and abortion care.
Immigration
Democrats will work to create and preserve an obtainable path to citizenship.

We believe that comprehensive reform is needed to provide an immigration system that is humane and non-discriminatory.

Families must be kept together.
Labor
Democrats work to ensure that both public and private workers may exercise their right to organize and join unions.

We recognize that unions contribute to building a stronger middle class, and support their critical role in fighting for living wages, fair work rules and hiring practices, and safe working conditions.
Native Americans
Democrats recognize the inherent sovereignty of Tribes, Pueblos, Bands, Villages, and Nations,

Democrats pledge to fulfill, honor, and strengthen to the highest extent possible the United States’ fundamental trust responsibility to Indigenous Peoples, as provided in the Constitution, treaties, and case law.
Veterans & Military Affairs
We believe all qualified persons who wish to serve our nation are free to do so without discrimination.

Our country has a sacred, moral responsibility to honor all of our veterans and wounded warriors.

The party that passed the G.I. Bill of Rights will always work to protect the benefits our veterans and their families have earned in service to our nation.
Women
Democrats are committed to ensuring full equality for women in education, employment, healthcare, and all other spheres of society.

We recognize that violence against women and girls is an epidemic, and stand firm in the need for a societal shift and the prosecution of perpetrators.

Democrats are pro-choice.
