AAUW Advocacy Day
January 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am MST
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) invite you in person to join them on Jan 30 at 10:00 am at the NM Land Office to learn from two speakers on advocating for climate legislation:
10:00 – Stephanie Garcia Richard, New Mexico Commissioner of Public Lands, will address environmental challenges and protections on state lands, especially methane recapture and the transportation and storage of spent nuclear fuel near the Permian Basin, the source of most of NM’s budget. She will also discuss using state lands for solar farming and affordable housing.
10:30-Dede Feldman, former NM Senator and author will discuss proposed legislation to modernize the NM Legislature and the authoritative research findings regarding the benefits of paying salaries to our unpaid legislators, providing shared professional staff, and allowing flexibility in session length and scope.
The public is invited to attend. Masks are required.
Please tell your friends and colleagues.
