WE NEED YOUR PARTNERSHIP & SUPPORT

 

Please watch our Call to Action above and join us in this movement as an invested ally.

 

With only a decade left to drastically reduce our carbon emissions and transition our economy to renewable energy sources, there's no time to spare.

 

We are asking for you to invest in this work and invest in our leadership as young people of color who are leading this fight in NM.

 

WE NEED ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO KEEP THE CAMPAIGN GOING!

 

You should know that our largest donor to date is in his twenties and he threw down $2,000 in one meeting. That’s how invested in this work our generations are. Will you match that investment?

 

For those of us with the privilege to donate, we ask that you dig deep and invest like our future depends on it – because it does.

 

We are still working to cover all the costs of the 9.20 action. To date we have received a total in $8,500 through our online fundraising as well as checks and cash donated at events where we passed the bowl. Costs we have not yet covered include the cost of building materials for our stage backdrops and compensation for the interpreters and documentation team.

 

We are also collecting donations to start covering staffing costs  in order to sustain our organizing effort beyond September 20th and the Week of Disruption. So far, Earth Care has donated hundreds and hundreds of hours of staff time as well as the funds needed to pay youth staff members.

 

We are catalyzing a movement of young people across New Mexico for climate justice. We plan to leverage the organizing infrastructure and momentum we are building as we approach the 2020 NM Legislative Session and 2020 local, state and national elections in order to win the policy changes we so desperately need. Please join us.
