PROGRESSIVE VOICES BEING HEARD
PDACNM is very proud to announce that the Preamble to the State Party Platform was written by one of our own, Jerilyn Bowen. Jerilyn beautifully articulates the values mirrored in the issues on which PDA was founded and continues to support to this day.
New Mexico Democrats believe that every person matters. We believe that all citizens should have a voice in how we as a people are governed, not just the rich and powerful. We stand for the 99%. We affirm the ties that bind us together as one human family. We envision a New Mexico in which every person is treated with respect and every person has what it takes to live a life of dignity-secure, decent-paying jobs; a just economic system; not-for-profit universal healthcare; high quality public schools; a safe, healthy environment where the unmatched beauty of our land is preserved for future generations. As caring citizens of this state, this country, and this planet, we hold these basic rights to be the natural heritage of all people. As dedicated Democrats, we band together to claim that heritage for every member of our human community, both now and in times to come.
And look for the first Progressive Caucus coming up in our state party in 2018 thanks largely to the efforts of another PDACNM leader – Cheryl Harris. More information
