The 2019 New Mexico State Legislative Session will be an important opportunity to pass legislation to do our part to stop the climate crisis. We need all New Mexicans to join us as grassroots lobbyists at the Roundhouse this year. Attend our Clean Energy Conference on the 28th and on the 29th get more training, visit informational tables, hear from speakers and go in teams to visit our legislators.
