The primary election is just 15 days away and pro-conservation candidates need your help! The political strength of Conservation Voters New Mexico (CVNM) isn’t just in donations in support of campaigns or endorsements – it really depends so much on YOU. Part of our job is to connect you to the campaigns of the best conservation candidates across the state. We hope you’ll be able to join some of the volunteer opportunities and events below and help out a CVNM-endorsed candidate near you.
