Help for People Affected by NM Wildfires

Here are some ways to help and some resources for those affected by northern New Mexico fires.

Donations for the Northern New Mexico Emergency Fire Fund are being accepted by HelpNM at https://helpnm.com/donate/ HELP New Mexico is providing resources and support in the form of housing vouchers, mental health resources, and more in the Las Vegas area. They are located at Memorial Middle School in Las Vegas from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily. The organization is prioritizing the release of funds in tiers, as defined here:1. People who can verify that they live in the burned area who are 55 years old or older and/or have a disability. 2. Anyone who can verify they live in an evacuated area with at least one child who is 12 years old or younger. 3. Any people who are evacuated who are currently staying with family or friends.

In addition, the New Mexico Coalition of Community Foundations has opened its “All Together NM Fund,” which had $100,00 that can be directed to providing emergency shelter. Donations to the fund are tax-deductible and can be made through the website, www.AllTogetherNM.org. Gifts by check may be mailed to the Santa Fe Community Foundation, PO Box 1827, Santa Fe, NM 87504 – please note “All Together NM Fund” on the check.

If you’re able and willing to donate space for people fleeing fires–yes, even in Albuquerque–you can help by contacting lauren.meiklejohn@gmail.com.

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.
