YES! Magazine to the rescue. Just when I was feeling a bit lost, along comes such a hopeful YES publication with one article on decolonizing our minds and another on escaping the chains of capitalism and inventing more cooperative local economies. Most instructive to our work in NM.
An eventful week in Santa Fe, in NM, and in the world. This blog provides links to the week’s major events as reported by Retake, as well as a listing of events coming. So if you missed anything this week, here is what you missed and here is what is coming.
Without Ranked Choice Voting, we could elect a conservative Mayor with 25% of the vote while 75% of voters split their votes between four excellent progressive candidates. We can’t let this happen and two judges agree. Read on for action details.
