National Governors’ Conference

When: Friday July 20 10:00 am
Where: State Capitol, East Side
What: Rally at the State Capitol and March to the Santa Fe Convention Center at 11:00 AM
Speakers: Prominent speakers in environmental protection and human rights

We demand our Governors step up to protect our human and civil rights., our air, water, and environment, and the right to a decent life.

The federal government has abandoned the people. Governors must support state policies and laws that

• Increase state funding for public education K – higher education
• Expand environmental protection and 100% renewable energy
• Ensure women’s access to reproductive health and right to choose
• Stop inhumane ICE enforcement, protect due process for immigrants and asylum
seekers, and keep families together
• Guarantee unions the right to organize and collect dues.
• Protect free speech rights to support Palestine through boycotts
• Protect voting rights and end gerrymandering
• Enforce stricter gun control laws, ban assault weapons and paraphernalia
• End mass incarceration and private prisons
• Protect indigenous lands and rights
• No interstate transfer of nuclear waste
