“…there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election. That allegation deserves the attention of every American.” — Robert Mueller
Watching Robert Mueller speak in a measured tone of voice with an expressionless face carefully reading aloud every word in his prepared statement, his final sentence struck me as a decree echoing through the ears and minds of people woke to the reality that the Constitution of the United States of America is under assault. We can easily reason away the sense of urgency in his message and we can easily feel like this work is for Congress and it is not ours to do. But that would be wrong because the work at hand is as much local as it is National. Building grassroots power can only be done in communities as concerned residents come together, raise consciousness, and negotiate our collective voice. Our New Mexico Congressional Delegation needs to hear our voice. And as they work in Washington D.C., you and I are tasked with building our strategy, tactics, and strength to elect and reelect fierce Democrats to represent us at City, County, State, and National levels.
To that end, the Democratic Party of Bernalillo County will be hosting an ACTivist Conference on Saturday, July 20, 2019. It will be held at Rio Grande High School, 2300 Arenal Rd SW, Albuquerque, NM 87105. The start and end time are TBD. This will be a great opportunity to learn strategies and tactics for local organizing.
We are building the bridge to an inclusive representative democracy while crossing it.
Yours in the fight for our Democracy,
