New Mexico

The NMCET envisions a thriving New Mexico where a New American Majority (NAM) that includes historically and systemically excluded communities — people of color, women, LGBTQ+, and young people — realizes full, decolonized freedom through access and attainment of justice.

We achieve this end by employing the principles of collective impact, unifying diverse organizations from different sectors around a common agenda to strengthen our democracy.

The NMCET’s objectives every year are to: (1) increase the vote share of NAM voters from the previous General Election cycle; (2) engage NAM constituencies in year-round issue education and public policy campaigns, and (3) achieve an increase in return in investment in NMCET partner organizations in order to continue to build civic engagement expertise and capacity in the state.
