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.
February 28 Meeting
We had a spirited meeting with lots of information about the Democratic Party of Doña Ana County’s upcoming elections, lots of talk about current bills going through the legislature, why “Democracy is not a spectator sport,” information on ways to help immigrants being dropped off by ICE, a wonderfully respectful dialogue about a controversial environment bill, and oh yeah, an announcement about a Prius Raffle.
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 will be posted soon.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, March 28, 2019, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
February 2019 UNIFIED ACTION
Sign up for the Legislative Response Team, Cont.
Sponsored by the PVA Executive Committee, www.pva-nm.org
The Legislative Response Team weighs in on critical issues under consideration during the legislative session in Santa Fe. Team members call or email legislators and make their positions known.
Past issues have included minimum wage, early childhood education, the environment, energy policy, voting rights, foreclosure procedures, and DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act).
The legislators notice and pay attention when they are hearing from their constituents.
Becoming a part of the Legislative Response Team means that you will receive an email when a bill is at a critical phase. The email will be simple: it will let you know the issue, which legislator to contact, the telephone number and email for that legislator, and whether you are recommending a Yes or No vote on that issue.
