People's Rally/Moral Monday @ the Roundhouse

The NM Progressive Coalition 2nd Annual People's Rally on Monday, Feb. 5, 8:30am-4pm at the NM state capitol (300 Don Gaspar, Santa Fe) will be beckoning all New Mexicans to join our grassroots efforts in making our voices heard at the 2018 NM Legislative Session. We believe the Roundhouse belongs to us, and all our citizens should be empowered to speak up for the betterment of New Mexico. Our slogan is “Telling our Stories: Demanding Progress.” There will be speakers telling stories that illuminate the challenges that ordinary New Mexicans face, Roundhouse tours from 8:30am-noon for those who are not familiar with our state capitol, music, food and grassroots organizations at the tables in the west wing. We hope people will visit their legislators and commend them for what they are doing to benefit the people of New Mexico and challenge them if they are working against our values and interests. We don’t have the paid lobbyists’ money but we can have the numbers and we can vote. This day has also been declared a Moral Monday and there will be a Poor People's Campaign press conference at some point during the day.     However, this is more than just a one-day effort. We hope to see more New Mexicans become informed and impassioned, life-long citizen advocates who will hold our state government accountable to the people rather than to private moneyed interests. We will invite New Mexicans to join our Legislative Alerts and citizen action efforts to build a strong progressive voice that will be a force to be reckoned with.
