” I NEED TO GET INVOLVED”
is a phrase we are hearing a lot of since the election. Here are some progressive actions and opportunities:
The NM Progressive Coalition (soon to be renamed) is planning a large meeting of progressive groups and individuals from around the city and state on December 17th. SEE ABOVE FLYER. Please come and bring your progressive friends. Everyone’s ideas and opinions are necessary right now if we are to survive the next four years, and move forward for the years after.
Somos un Pueblo Unido
The looming Trump administration promises to be not only anti-immigrant but also anti-worker.
Founded in 2012 by Somos Un Pueblo Unido, the United Worker Center of New Mexico (UWC) is the state’s only worker center where members lead policy campaigns and organize to counter rights abuses in individual workplaces by forming worksite committees- an innovative model that has caught the attention of unions, academics, and national media.
The UWC has organized over 60 workplace committees and helped recuperate close to $1 million dollars in stolen wages and back pay-putting hard earned money back in the pockets of working families and into our local economies. Find out how to help and get involved here.
