Aug 19, 2021

Las Cruces, NM – On this edition of PUENTES a la comunidad, bridges to the community, host Emily Guerra spoke to League of Women Voters of Southern New Mexico Co-President, Eileen VanWie, about a virtual voter webinar event sponsored by the non-partisan Southern New Mexico Suffrage Alliance on Saturday, August 28th. Information and registration for the event is through NAACP of Doña Ana County First Vice-President, Liz Rodriguez-Johnson, at lizrodjohn@aol.com; and on Facebook – Southern New Mexico Suffrage Alliance – Voter Expression, Not Voter Suppression.

VanWie says “the event has three goals shared by organizations who are holding national marches on the same day in Washington, DC, Tampa Bay, Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Nashville, Phoenix, California, Utah, Washington State and more: 1) Motivate people to be civically active to preserve democratic principles; complacency is not an option. 2) Identify activities that could provide support to states dealing with voter suppression. 3) Unify diverse groups to work together to strengthen democracy.”
