Democracy for New Mexico is an independent blog that reports and publishes commentary on local and national politics, progressive issues and candidates, grassroots activism and local events with the goal of increasing citizen participation in progressive politics.
The blog also functions as an information clearinghouse for progressive candidates, organizations and causes.
Separately, the DFA-DFNM Meetup is a group that works to inform and empower ordinary citizens to take effective and creative political action to further progressive goals. The Meetup is loosely affiliated with Democracy for America, founded orginally by Howard Dean, and evolved out of the Dean for America Meetup group in Albuquerque.
DFA-DFNM Meetups in Albuquerque are held on the first Tuesday of the month. Visit http://dfa.meetup.com/160/ to sign up for the Meetup listserve and join the Albuquerque DFA-DFNM Meetup group.
