Energy Democracy Convergence
January 17 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm MST
YUCCA is hosting this Energy Democracy Convergence on the eve of the 2022 NM State Legislative Session where NM state representatives, senators, and the Governor will convene to debate legislation in a 30 day session. This session only financially related legislation and the Governor’s agenda is able to be considered.
In the last few years, more climate legislation has been considered but it continues to be considered from a top down corporate approach. We cannot continue to consider legislation with the pockets of industry and corporations as the top priority are not going to get us out of this crisis. We are must organize for community-based and power shifting solutions instead.
Thus we are putting forward the calls of New Mexicans and frontline communities to host Energy Democracy and Environmental Justice movement leaders – in order to deliberate about the principles, frameworks, opportunities, and threats in our movements. We are concerned that we only have 10 years to act and that in order to do so – we need to make sure to work together to build power and work against forces that aim to co-opt and divide us or marginalize us – and get clear about what we are working FOR.
