Current Calls to Action

Below is a list of links where you can QUICKLY and EASILY take action. Apologies that this is such a long list! Nonetheless, please do as much as you can! The future of our state is hanging in the balance right now. Many of the Bills that you have already taken action on have been passed in specific committees, so the legislator contact info has been updated on these. Will you please take action on ALL of these issues that are important to you once again?

  • MOVING FAST - OPPOSE: HB7 - Reproductive and Gender Affirming Health Care -This would strip municipalities of the right to restrict access to abortion and gender transitioning services, create legal enforcement mechanisms that will make moral objectors vulnerable to civil suits, and cut parents out of the process. For example, a school nurse could be seen as “interfering” with access to abortion or gender transitioning services if she were to call a parent regarding the student’s request to obtain these services; thus, bypassing parent involvement and/or awareness.

  • NEW - OPPOSE: SB 180 - Election Changes - This would substantially revise New Mexico’s election code including forcing counties to use internet-connected ‘poll books’ at voting locations (with no provision that these be secure, opening the door for potential hacking from outside sources), removing safeguards around having a minor serve on an election board, etc.

  • NEW - OPPOSE: SB218 - Socialized Utility Rates - Low-Income Public Utility Rates: This would force hard-working families struggling to pay their own bills to help pay for others’ utility bills!

  • MOVING FAST: HB4 - Election Changes - It allows convicted felons to vote immediately upon release (even if still on parole). It mandates increased use of drop boxes, and creates a permanent absentee voter list, completely eroding secure and verifiable absentee voting practices.

  • OPPOSE: HB9 - Unlawful Access by Minors to Firearms -

  • OPPOSE: HB25 and HB28 - Would Raise Minimum Wage to $16/Hour, leading to higher inflation and fewer jobs -

  • OPPOSE - HB 50 - Will outlaw possession of guns with more than 9 rounds (which includes most handguns) -

  • OPPOSE: SB11 - Family Medical Leave Act -

  • OPPOSE: Abortion Clinic in Las Cruces -

  • SUPPORT: HB110 - Voter ID Protection -

  • SUPPORT: House Bill HB80 to limit the Governor's Emergency Powers -

  • SUPPORT: Senate Bill SB65 to limit the Governor's Emergency Powers-

  • SUPPORT: HJR9 Joint Resolution to Fight the Rising Crime -

Your voice matters. Please send this on to like-minded people! ---------------------- Thank you for ACTING NOW for the good of New Mexico, Sarah Smith, Karen Larré, and Melanie Rubin New Mexico Freedoms Alliance National Coalition for Health Integrity
