The Progressive Voter Alliance is a clearinghouse and point of contact for advocates of a wide range of progressive issues. We do not endorse specific candidates or causes. For an idea of the issues that have been addressed at PVA meetings, check out the Meeting Recaps. For current issues, come to the next meeting, almost always held on the fourth Thursday of the month.
The January Unified Action is to participate in PVA’s Legislative Response Team. You can add your voice by sending an email to legislativeactionNM@gmail.com. The Unified Action page contains details about the LRT and its history of advocating for progressive laws in New Mexico.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their February 11, 2016, meeting. Suggestions for a Unified Action can be communicated to Cheryl Frank or any member of the Executive Committee. All Unified Actions are indexed here.
Well over 100 people attended the January meeting. Forty people gave two-minute talks on topics that ranged from methane emissions to campaign finance reform. Concerns poured out about the education secretary’s most recent attack on our local school board. Seven candidates announced their intention to run for local or state office, and one candidate announced that she is running for Congress. The Rio Grande wetlands are being restored, AdobeHenge is moving forward, and we now have a community radio station.
All events announced at the January meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar. The complete meeting recap is posted here.
PVA’s next meeting will be Thursday, February 25, 2016, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
