A Sunday morning gathering of progressive thinkers who explore, through presentations, issues that influence our daily lives and the lives of future generations. We hope these gatherings, through understanding and knowledge of the world around us, will ignite change for the common good and provide a sense of community. FREE and OPEN to the public.
Journey Santa Fe presents:
For the last 15 years, Think New Mexico has effectively advocated in our
legislature for needed reforms. Because of their work, the tax on food has been
repealed, full-day kindergarten is now available to every child in the state, the
PRC has been reformed, and more. Founder and Executive Director Fred Nathan
will discuss Think New Mexico’s history and successes, and discuss their current
initiative, to address New Mexico’s long-standing and stubborn jobs crisis.
We are fortunate to welcome our friend State Rep. Egolf back to Journey Santa Fe.
Brian will brief us on the issues likely to be prominent in the upcoming legislative
session, an exclusively budgetary session, and how we can be effective advocates
for responsible, compassionate priorities.
Senator Peter Wirth will discuss water dynamics and water policy in a changing
New Mexico environment. We have heard a lot about water, droughts, rivers and
aquifers in our series over the last couple of years. Senator Wirth will provide us
with an overview as it relates to law and policy in New Mexico.
Cookies, Kids and Carols! Luminaria and Farolitos! Canyon Road walk! It’s one ofthe most beautiful times of the year to be a Santafesino/a. We are putting together a little celebration to capture the beauty of the season and express our gratitude that you and Collected Works Bookstore have supported another year of presentations and conversations.
This legislative session will be pivotal, for its own sake as well as it providing a
running start of the 2014 election for Governor and US Representatives. Interfaith
Worker Justice of New Mexico, a consortium of individuals and organizations of
faith and conscience, believes that a budget is a moral document that reflects and
shapes our values. Holly Beaumont reminds us that New Mexico has not waited
for the US Congress to act before banning the death penalty, raising the minimum
wage, and banning hate crimes. The best time to apply pressure on our elected
officials is just before they seek re-election. This session is the time to address
wage theft and other matters of social and economic justice in a state that now has
the highest levels of child and senior hunger in the nation.
