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.

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.

Legislative Action Expo – Jan. 11 (DPBC & PDA+) Retake Our Democracy:

https://retakeourdemocracy.org/


VFP has taken the lead in lifting up the original intention of November 11th – as a day for peace.
As veterans we know that a day that celebrates peace, not war, is the best way to honor the sacrifices of veterans.
We want generations after us to never know the destruction war has wrought on people and the earth.
