Dear Fellow New Mexican,
When Amelia and I conceived of this project, we were looking for a way fit more engagement in local politics into our extremely busy schedules. Like most progressives, we were horrified by the election of Trump and looking for a way to engage and resist here in our home state. I have been involved in Shaun King's Injustice Boycott since it launched and loosely modeled this project after his. The idea was to present simple actions in a weekly email that busy people (or people who were already involved in other campaigns and were looking for a way to be part of collective action) could fit into their weekly schedules.
We would like to thank all of you who have joined us and have participated in some or all of our first 20 actions. We have both reached an especially busy time in our lives and have decided to take a two week hiatus to wrap up some projects and catch our breaths.
Amelia will be back next week with some exciting news about the project she has been working on and you can expect our next action email on Monday, June 26th.
In the meantime, please feel free to share any feedback you may have on what you like or dislike about this project. Things you think are working or things you think we could improve. We have heard from many of you already and are so grateful to have expanded our network of passionate progressives here in New Mexico.
Thank you for all you are doing!
