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 May 2018 Unified Action is to:
Reach out to the people in your Personal Influence Network
and tell them about the Primary Election
Sponsored by the PVA Executive Committee, www.pva-nm.org
Voting is essential to our democracy. It’s also important that we advocate for the candidates we believe in. A friend’s recommendation can have a big influence on how we vote.
Encourage your network of friends to vote in this important election – every vote makes a difference.
Reach out to friends and family members who might not normally vote and let them know which candidates you support. This is an important action!
What we are asking
Urge those in your Personal Influence Network to vote for the candidate or candidates you believe are most qualified.

The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their June 14, 2018, 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.
May 24 Meeting
The May meeting was informative and engaging, as usual. We heard from many candidates and their supporters. PVA is obviously the place to be if you want to get to know the candidates. We learned about a bunch of great events coming up. We also heard about other topics, including the LCPS budget process, KTAL community radio shows, San Juan County gas wells, and ways to speak up about proposed cuts to SNAP. You had to be there, but if you weren’t, all events announced at the meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar and the full recap is posted here.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, June 28, 2018, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. This shortened meeting will be followed by our annual party. Map.
