PDACNM Newsletter – February 1, 2021

 

Support NM House Bill 40

Ask Governor Lujan Grisham to commit to take actions this year to phase out private prisons in New Mexico. Remind her that in a few years, due to changes in federal contracts and a declining New Mexico prison population, the state will not need more than 80% of the private beds it currently permits.

We want MLG to lead the shift away from private detention in New Mexico beginning today!

Truth. Consequences. Actions.

Good morning friends – this week has been an emotional and mental cyclone. Seeing America – it’s centuries of white nationalism exposed – can be triggering and so familiar for those most oppressed, embarrassing-to-infuriating for white folks, and alarming for all. “Nothing can be changed until it is faced” said James Baldwin – and here we are. Our critical work is both personal and internal anti-racism/oppression work, coupled with an ongoing commitment to “good trouble, necessary trouble” in every sphere of our family and community lives.

Impeach-Expel-Disqualify-Investigate-Hold Accountable: The Day After (CEVNM)

Morning Friends – none of us have slept much and all of us are heart-broken yet unsurprised as white supremacy, white male privilege, and hatred once again terrorized our nation. One of our members sent me her grandchild’s assessment – these were Terrorists treated like Tourists. The clear differences from this policing of white terrorists vs. Movement for Black Lives protesters was stark and violent.

Thank yous to Sayrah and Zach for keeping us informed about SantaFe Trumpers’ actions, many of you sending me alerts, and for everyone who called/used social media to push our state and national elected officials. Your presence helped me feel less afraid, more substantial and able, and ready to continue our work.

Trump is not ceding power. Whether he is removed via the 25th amendment, impeached or not, his terrorist followers want their civil war. So we need to be vigilant! Stay informed and connected – together we mobilize to defend now and build the Radical Democracy that cares for all of us!

BELOW are national calls, our next zoom, and some very supportive thoughts.
