CALL TO ACTION: push back against extremism

 

ACTIONS:  NEW MEXICO: LOCAL & ROUNDHOUSE
Right now:  Protect our Legislators and the Roundhouse – contact your State Representative and Senator, plus leadership.
Find your NM legislators: 
   Call – the NM Legislative Council Service at 505 986-4600
Senate:
   Sen. Peter Wirth, Majority Leader:  peter.wirth@nmlegis.gov   Capitol phone (505) 986-4727
House:
  Rep. Brian Egolf, Speaker of the House brian.egolf@nmlegis.gov  Capitol phone (505) 986-4782
Talking point suggestions: We are concerned for your safety and the safety of all the employees when in the Roundhouse for any required days. It is clear from the FBI notices about Trump extremists’ plans, and from white nationalist social media promising a civil war and “blood on the walls” – that state capitols are being targeted starting January 16th. With only 60 days to consider hundreds of bills, we need this Legislative session to continue with no delays for building evacuations, bomb detection, and more. We ask that you consider a full virtual session or change the in-person days to later in the session. Additionally, your leadership is critical – please speak out now about the full legitimacy of the Electoral College vote, and that any attempts to derail your work is an attack on our democracy.

Starting Friday thru Inauguration:   #StopTheSpread campaign – Contact NM Gov & Depts
Focus: Every time the extremists and Trump supporters gather, they are almost universally maskless and massed together creating super-spreader events. They are planning to be at the Roundhouse starting Saturday, Jan. 16 through 22nd.
Everyone: contact Governor & NM Dept Secretaries, plus use Reporting Form.
Talking points: We demand that you protect our health and enforce the current public health orders. When these maskless Trump supporters spread coronavirus, they threaten the health of my family, our elders, and the hardest hit Native communities and African Americans. These extremists are threatening a civil war and plan to be at the Roundhouse from January 16th – 20th. Nearly all our NM counties are RED – our hospitals are overwhelmed and our frontline healthcare teams are exhausted. Stop these maskless Trump supporters from brazenly ignoring public health orders and endangering the health of Roundhouse staff, Legislators, and capitol law enforcement, and all of us citizens.
