CVNM Education Fund works to connect communities of color, indigenous communities, low-wealth communities, rural communities, and young voters to our country’s civic process. We do this through public education, partnerships with democratic organizations, and get-out-the-vote efforts.
An equitable and just democracy is critical to ensuring that our government serves and represents all New Mexicans and all communities.The communities hardest hit by climate change and plagued with legacy pollution – rural, indigenous and/or communities of color – have historically been denied access to the ballot box. In 2021 alone, 19 states passed 34 laws restricting access to voting, and more than 440 bills were introduced in 49 states. These restrictions disproportionately target voters of color, creating more obstacles that prevent communities from exercising their right to vote.
CVNM Education Fund engages with impacted communities, in collaboration with the Secretary of State’s efforts, to improve voter education and ballot services at the local level. We believe this will help lead to an equitable voting system that is accessible to all New Mexicans.
