Sign On To Urge Governor’s Support

Sign On to Urge Governor Lujan Grisham to Support a New Mexico Green Amendment.

On August 25, 2021, Governor Lujan Grisham signed Executive Order 2021-052 announcing the New Mexico “30×30” Framework, an initiative to conserve at least 30% of New Mexico’s lands by 2030 to help avert climate crisis and to “sustain traditional ways of life, provide our drinking water, ensure food security, preserve biodiversity, … promote the health and wellbeing of all who call New Mexico home,” while also protecting the state’s economy.  

This sign on letter reminds the Governor that a New Mexico Green Amendment will be a powerful compliment to her 30×30 plan, providing a strong constitutional foundation for ensuring state agencies and officials have the tools necessary to achieve success and, at the same time, ensuring a lasting legacy of protection and success for present and future generations.  

Please join your organization and/or personal voice with others to urge the Governor to take a public stance in support of the New Mexico Green Amendment.  See the letter and sign on here:  https://bit.ly/GovSupportNMGreenAmend

You can also help via your social media platforms to encourage others to sign.  Find sample tweets and text on our Social Media Toolkit page.
