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.

New Mexico Public Bank Legislation: What You Need to Know

The time has come for New Mexico to make the bold step of taking control of its own state finances. New Mexico loses up to half of the money it spends on debt service in interest payments to big banks. Let’s bring that money home by creating a public bank.

A public bank is a financial institution owned by the state of New Mexico that finances
New Mexico infrastructure projects and small businesses, clean energy, affordable housing, and many other economic development projects that need Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) loans, through participation loans with community banks and credit unions. The LEDA loans can be enhanced with public bank loans to support local economic development. Instead of selling bonds to out-of-state banks and investors, a public bank can replace the need for the issuance of bonds and help New Mexico by bringing the debt service payments back to New Mexico, as public bank income, and offering lower interest rates. A simple $50 million in capital can generate as much as $500 million in funds to leverage the projects we need.
