LGBTQ+ Round Table

In keeping with holding meetings every other month, we set the date for our next meeting to be 
In Santa Fe for a lobby day at the legislative session:
Please come February 10, 2023 9:00 am to 11:00 am which will be our regular round table meeting and include some training for the legislature. We are asking for you to plan on staying until about 2:00 in the afternoon so we can all visit with legislators in person. Please hold the entire day on your calendar.
We have received really great training information from Lena Weber-Salazar, from the ACLU of New Mexico that they are using to train people.Thanks Lena!  Their training will be focused on Reproductive Rights & Justice Legislative Advocacy, but for anyone interested in a training on legislative advocacy, the ACLU of New Mexico is holding a virtual (Jan 4th at 5:30 p.m.) and in-person training in ABQ (Jan 10th at 5:30 p.m.) and all are welcome. These will specifically focus on reproductive rights & justice legislation and how to get involved, but will also cover general advice for how to navigate the legislative session, ways to engage with your legislator and tips and examples for preparing what you will say. You can apply this to any legislation you want to support, like the bills EQNM presented at our roundtable. (see attached flyer) The ACLU will have tamales at the in-person meeting 😊. RSVP for the virtual link or ABQ location here:  https://www.aclu-nm.org/en/events

 

 Also attached is a document they have for anyone who wants it that outlines how to navigate the New Mexico Legislature website (how to find your legislator, tracking bills etc).
It is a whole process to connect with legislators and maneuver the Round House. I suggest you join the training and/or go over the attachment thoroughly prior to our meeting Feb 10 so the information is not so new to you. If you already have experience in lobbying, please plan on attending, and partner up with folks who may be new or not familiar. Now is the time to work together!
 
Every meeting moving forward will have a specific topic area and we will invite a group of partners from the table to put together the agenda around that topic in whatever makes sense to them. Our April meeting will focus on mental health issues and especially suicide among LGBTQ folks. We will have training, resources, and a deeper dive into this topic provided by our partners for whom this is the priority mission or main work of their organization!
