PDACNM Newsletter – February 2021

Take Advantage of Your Rights as a Citizen

Join PDACNM for citizen advocacy and meet with staff of your US Senator or Representative. Every month PDACNM sits with these friendly folks to express concerns, show support, share information and create lasting relationships.  We bring a letter from PDA national asking to support specific legislation or to express our thanks for their support.  These letters are delivered by PDA chapters throughout the country. We welcome your participation.

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.

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.
