Fellow New Mexicans! Have you had a hard time finding affordable high-quality childcare or a neighborhood prekindergarten program for your child? You are not alone. The Invest in Kids NOW! coalition is advocating to invest 1% of our $16 BILLION Land Grant Permanent Fund into high-quality early childhood programs across the state! The Land Grant Permanent Fund is dedicated to the education of our children, and now we know that learning begins at birth, so we must start to invest sooner.

MARCH.RESIST.EMPOWER.jpg 

On January 21, 2017 we made our voices heard across the country. From DC to Albuquerque, we stood up to demand better. It’s been a long year and now there’s even more to fight for, and we’ve made it known that we won’t back down and we will continue to bring #PowerToThePolls!

The 2018 elections stand to be a pivotal point in our current political climate. This year following the anniversary events, the Women’s March will be touring the nation to register voters, engage underserved communities, and put force behind women and progressive candidates in swing states. Let’s make sure the nation and world hears us as we commit to bringing even more #PowerToThePolls!
