Earth Care grows grassroots leadership from the ground up by training & supporting youth & parent leaders who organize campaigns to build a healthy, just, and sustainable world

Earth Care and Santa Fe Mutual Aid Network partners have launched a #sharemycheckcampaign

Please join us by redistributing all of, or part of, your stimulus check to a fund set up to redistribute these checks directly to those who won't be receiving a check. This fund is part of a network of rapid response mutual-aid funds and long-term grassroots movement building organizations under the umbrella of Santa Fe Mutual Aid. Participating organizations include Earth Care/YUCCA/Poder Familiar, Red Nation, DSA-SF, SF Dreamers Project, Communities in Schools, and Fathers New Mexico.


Joining this effort means being part of a commitment to wealth redistribution. While millions of people will soon receive their stimulus checks from the federal government, many will remain unemployed, uninsured, and unsheltered while COVID-19 continues to spread. A one-time $1,200 payment is unlikely to make it or break it for folks w/ stable income and those who come from generational wealth. But it can mean the difference between survival and desperation for millions of others who won't be getting a check at all. Those who aren't receiving a check are many of the hardest hit by this crisis. Pledge to #ShareMyCheck with SFMutualAid and join the campaign to ensure that we all have enough to make it through this crisis.

    Call to Action - Call the Governor's Office

    Here's a call script from organizers from Keep Santa Fe Multicultural mural campaign. For more information, check out their website: https://keepsantafemulticultural.org/    Governor's Office: 505-476-2200   Hello, my name is [insert your name] and I am your constituent from [insert city and state]. I am calling to ask Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to do everything in her power to save the historic Multicultural mural that currently resides on the Halpin Building on 2118 S Guadalupe Street. The Department of Cultural Affairs has not been transparent about their plans to demolish an important artwork, painted by renowned artists (Gilberto Guzmán, Frederico Vigil, Zara Kriegstein, Rosemary Stearns, David Bradley, and Linda Lomahoftewa) and members of the community, without public input. I am calling on you to ask the DCA to postpone any further plans to demolish the mural. The DCA should host a public townhall and provide a timeline on Vladem Contemporary’s construction and all plans for demolition of the building. Given that DCA has misrepresented the conservator’s report on the mural, they should also seek a cost estimate proposal by a qualified professional examining all the options provided in Lawrence's original report. And while the DCA’s mission is a ‘dedication to preserving and celebrating the cultural integrity and diversity of our state,’ by pushing for the destruction of a significant cultural and historical marker in Santa Fe, they are not only evading their stated mission, but treating the museum's construction and the mural's destruction as if it were entirely funded by private money when that is not the case. Please advocate for this significant public artwork and all that it stands for.         Attachments area
