Contrary to the fear and misinformation sold to our communities, caring for the environment, and each other, does not come at the expense of an economy that benefits all New Mexicans. Our state’s economic future is bigger than any single issue or industry and rebuilding it will take state and federal investments, and visionary leadership to become reality.
The Sustainable Economy Task Force, created with the passage of NM Senate Bill 112, will work to ensure our state’s clean energy revolution prioritizes communities most affected while also addressing the climate crisis.
The new coalition Nuevo Mexico Prospera is made up of organizations from around the state working to diversify the state’s economy while creating thousands of jobs for communities most impacted by climate change. Congresswoman Teresa Leger Fernandez will kick-off the event, which will include representatives from Senators Heinrich and Lujan, and perspectives from front line workers and community members from throughout the state.
A new analysis released today shows that a robust economic recovery package that prioritizes investments in clean energy and climate solutions as well as care infrastructure could be a huge boost to New Mexico, generating more than 50,000 jobs in the state.
