DON’T LET THE DCCC HAVE ITS WAY.  HELP ELECT PROGRESSIVES IN SPITE OF IT!

GO HERE TO SEE THE PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATES THAT PDA HAS ENDORSED AND SEND A CHECK OR VOLUNTEER.  LAURA MOSER (TX-07) IS ONE OF THE CANDIDATES UNDER ATTACK AND SHE WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO A RUNOFF IN THE PRIMARY BECAUSE OF THE SUPPORT SHE GATHERED IN RESPONSE TO THE DCCC’S ATTACKS AGAINST HER.

State Democrats Authorize New Progressive Caucus

[Truth or Consequences, NM – April 21, 2018] — The State Central Committee (SCC) of the Democratic Party of New Mexico authorized the state’s first progressive caucus on April 21 at the SCC meeting in Truth or Consequences: the Adelante Progressive Caucus.

“Adelante” is a Spanish word that means “move ahead” or “go forward.” The new caucus, already with more than 250 members from 10 New Mexico counties, will work to move the Democratic party forward by attracting and recruiting people who have been historically under-represented in the democratic process, to implement a small-donor base fundraising model in the state party, and to create more transparency and accountability in the state and national party.

The Adelante Progressive Caucus fully supports the new platform of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, approved by more than 90% of the delegates at the March 2018 convention, including the values outlined in the platform preamble:

All citizens should have an equal voice in how we are governed and call out the disproportionate influence by rich and powerful special interests on our government.
We envision a New Mexico in which every person has what it takes to live a life of dignity-secure, decent-paying jobs; a just economic system; not-for-profit universal healthcare; high quality public schools; a safe, healthy environment where the unmatched beauty of our land is preserved for future generations.

As caring citizens of this state, this country, and this planet, we hold these basic rights to be the natural heritage of all people.

As dedicated Democrats, we band together to claim that heritage for every member of our human community, both now and in times to come.

There are now Democratic Party progressive caucuses in at least 17 states, a sign of the growing strength of the nationwide movement to reinvigorate the party with the participation of people of all ages, genders, colors, and incomes.

All are invited to one of the first events held by the caucus, a forum for Democratic candidates in races for state land commissioner, Bernalillo County sheriff, and PRC District 4, on Saturday, May 12, at 2 p.m., at the Albuquerque Main Library, 501 Copper NW, in the downstairs auditorium.

PDACNM NEWSLETTER April 9, 2018 – Practice Peace

CRISIS IN GAZA

One of PDA’s 7 pillars is Ending Wars and Occupations and for this reason as well as the fact that it is the right thing to do, we make the focus of this issue  the violent actions taken by Israel against innocent protestors in Gaza. The illegal occupation of Palestine has brought unceasing misery to the lives of the Palestinians and created impossible living conditions for the people of Gaza.  As individuals we can’t be the actual brokers for a peaceful resolution to the conflict but we can use our voices to protest Israel’s murderous acts of violence and demand that our government speak out and cease our country’s moral (immoral) and financial support of this violence. Go to the rally, write letters, call your Representatives and Senators, educate your neighbors. And write and call the media and ask them why they have given either tepid or little or no coverage to this  outrage.

PDACNM NEWSLETTER MARCH 28, 2018 – “Give them a piece of your mind”

Presentation: The Danger to our Groundwater  
Hydraulic Fracking in the Albuquerque Basin

6:30 pm, April 3, 2018 in the Vincent E. Griego Council Chambers, basement level of the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Government Center, 1 Civic Plaza NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102. The city council chambers holds 250 people so please attend and bring your friends.

Hydraulic fracking presents an unique threat to our ground water in the highly fractured rock of Albuquerque Basin. The geology of the Albuquerque Basin is unlike that of the Permian and the San Juan Basins.

Please attend a presentation by Geologist Don Phillips that clearly illustrates these geologic differences in the Albuquerque Basin that make hydraulic fracking so dangerous to our drinking water and our future.

Don Phillips’ Groundwater Protection Presentation has already been seen by hundreds of concerned citizens and convinced many of them that hydraulic fracking cannot be safely done in the Albuquerque Basin. Come see for yourself.
The Presentation is sponsored by Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis and Bernalillo County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins.
