Tell our leaders that now is the time to open new doors to an economy where ALL communities thrive and New Mexico’s air, land, water, and wildlife are protected!
To: Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and Legislators
After 100 years of burning fossil fuels, our children, communities, and cultural traditions are suffering. New Mexico ranks 50th in child wellbeing, 50th in education, 1 in 5 children in NM face hunger, and prolonged drought, increased heat, and wildfire threaten our air, land, water, and wildlife. These realities underscore the need for New Mexico to act quickly and move forward with a just and equitable energy transition away from fossil fuels that set the foundation for all of the state’s people and communities to thrive.
These realities point to a truth that my neighbors and communities across New Mexico have been saying for years. We support solutions that simultaneously address New Mexicans' climate and economic crises to bring more equity and justice to our energy-based economy.
I urge you to open new doors to a climate and economy that works for everyone and protects our air, land, water, and wildlife, including urgent action forward with a just and equitable energy transition from fossil fuels.
