Dem Party and CD1 Elections Webinar
Webinar: All About Dem Party and CD1 Elections
Who will lead our local party going forward? How do we fill Deb Haaland’s place as our CD1 Representative in Congress? How will it all be decided? A panel of distinguished Dems, including NM Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Bernalillo County Clerk Linda Stover, offer answers to these questions and more.
If you missed the live event, catch up now:
Follow the Legislative Action
Early in January, many dedicated Dems gathered virtually to share information and concerns prior to this month’s upcoming legislative session. There were tabling by issues-based organizations, as well as town halls and individual presentations by state legislators (all via an online Expo created by DBPC and cosponsors) where important issues and plans for action and progress came into clear view.
Now any and all who want to follow the action going forward will find that the NM legislature’s website at www.nmlegis.gov lists and provides links to bills introduced, as well as committee meetings in support of legislation. It also allows constituents to register in order to track the progress of bills as they make their way toward passage.
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.
Affordable, high-quality pre-K through college education is a basic 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.
We believe that comprehensive reform is needed to provide an immigration system that is humane and non-discriminatory.
Families must be kept together.
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.
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.
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.
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.
