Exciting news!! The new Plaza Comunitaria is finally underway. We just signed the MOU with our partners and will soon be bringing classes (this month!). We have so much gratitude for the Consulado de México en Albuquerque for their partnership in this endeavor. Check out this article from the Santa Fe Reporter to read more about this program.

Felicidades a Earth Care/Poder Familiar & Consulado de México! Leer este artículo en español.

Spanish speakers who need help with basic literacy and education, including computer skills, will now have a new place to learn here on the Southside.

The program is for Spanish-speaking adults (of any nationality) to work on their elementary and secondary education, all for free. It will consist of different certified courses, including primary education and computer classes, basic literacy in Spanish and beginner English lessons.

If you are interested or know someone who might be in the Plaza Comunitaria, call 505-204-1628 or email info@earthcarenm.org.

Si está interesado o conoce a alguien que podría estar en la Plaza Comunitaria, llame al 505-204-1628 o envíe un correo electrónico a info@earthcarenm.org.

2020 NM State Legislative Session

Happy New Year!

The 2020 New Mexico State Legislative Session is around the corner! This year is a short session meaning our legislators have just 30 days to debate, rework and pass legislation. But community, organizations and activists have been working and pushing for different issues across the board. Below are some of the legislative activist trainings happening in the area. Sign up, learn about the issues on the table for this session. 

Session Starts: Tuesday, January 21

Session Ends: February 20

For those of you new to the legislative process in New Mexico, there are a few things you should know. Our legislature is the lawmaking branch of the NM state government. It is made up of two bodies: the House of Representatives and the Senate. You can find out who your legislators are on this website. You can also log into your voter profile on the NM Secretary of State website here

The Legislature meets in a "short session" every even-numbered year, so only 30 days. A long session is 60 days. On even-numbered years, we hold a short, 30 day session, which is limited to fiscal matters, items specified by the Governor and bills passed in the previous session that were vetoed by the governor. Every legislator needs to hear from their constituents, AKA ALL OF YOU, this session. We must hold our legislators to their word and ensure that they are committed to good policy for our state and its residents. 

There are a number of very important bills that have already been pre-filed at the NM State Legislature. You can see all pre-filed bills here
