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.
