New Name and Affiliation with RepresentUs
New Mexicans for Money Out of Politics (NMMOP) has changed its name to RepresentUs New Mexico (RUNM) and has created a state chapter of the national organization, RepresentUs! This transition is the result of NMMOP’s strategic planning committee work for over a year. The committee was aided on this project by SCORE, a nonprofit organization that specializes in advising and helping small and medium size nonprofit and for profit businesses succeed and grow. With help from SCORE leaders Mike Mendez and Marcia Swain, the committee (members Rebecca Alvarez, Laura Atkins, Bruce Berlin, Hannah Burling, Sheila Burns and John House) worked to reimagine the organization, reignite the passion and vision that the organization began with in 2017 and develop new plans and strategies.
Why We Must Get Big Money Out of Politics
Our political leaders are too beholden to special interests and their wealthy donors because they must rely on their donations to get elected. As a result, they do not truly serve the needs of the American people.
The dominance of excessive amounts of money pouring into politics not only corrupts government itself, but also blocks effective action on virtually every major issue Americans care about.
We believe the only force capable of challenging the corrupting influence of moneyed special interests is a diverse, nonpartisan, grassroots movement. New Mexicans for Money Out of Politics is helping to build a Democracy
Movement to meet this urgent need.
Help to Make Government Work for ALL the People.
If we really want a government of, by and for the people as our founders intended, it is up to US to make it happen. Let’s join together to make government work for ALL of us.
NMMOP has formed an affiliation with American Promise (AP), a national organization promoting a 28th Amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s disastrous decisions in Buckley v. Valeo, Citizens United v. FEC, Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s Freedom Club PAC v. Bennett and McCutcheon v. FEC and other disastrous cases.
We lobby our federal, state and local elected officials on this important issue, as well as on other democracy reform legislation (see our Mission and Goals on this website here).
