November 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:45 am MST
Join us via Zoom to learn more about our teams’ plans and progress, our guest organization update, and a presentation from our invited speaker.
Guest Organization Update: Alliance for Local Economic Prosperity
Melissa Pickett, Outreach Coordinator from the Alliance for Local Economic Prosperity, the think tank for a New Mexico Public Bank. A state public bank could play a role in managing state investments and support the transition of the state’s economy to a more sustainable climate future. Melissa supports the public bank, in part, as the bank could address the impacts of climate change by financing clean energy infrastructure, increasing renewable energy lending, and incorporating values for regeneration and sustainability into its lending policy.
Invited Talk: The Green Amendment
Maya K. van Rossum will be speaking to us about planning and progress towards a Green Amendment in New Mexico.
The goal of the Green Amendments For The Generations is to advance a Green Amendment movement that sweeps the nation and secures for all people constitutional recognition and protection of their inalienable rights to pure water, clean air, a stable climate and healthy environments. We seek to inspire and support pursuit and passage of self-executing, environmental rights amendments in the Bill of Rights section of every state constitution across the U.S. and ultimately at the federal level. Once accomplished, we will work with communities to ensure their strong and meaningful implementation and enforcement.
Maya is Founder of the Green Amendment For The Generations Movement, author of The Green Amendment, Securing Our Right to a Healthy Environment and is also serving for over 26 years as the Delaware Riverkeeper & leader of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network
