Friends, a while back we announced that we had been accepted to Netroots Nation to present a panel. And we've put together an amazing team to go and represent Las Cruces and Doña Ana County to the rest of the world about the work being done here, right on the border.
We know that Trump is holding children hostage so he can "build the wall" but what most people aren't talking about is that THE WALL IS ALREADY BEING BUILT. Along the southern border of Doña Ana County, miles of 18' foot wall sections have already been installed, replacing the vehicle barriers and effectively cutting off the ability of any animal larger than a lizard from moving freely across the landscape. And of course, we know that the wall is also a symbol of division and hate and has no place in our state or our country.
That's why we're so excited to be able to take our story to the world's largest gathering of progressive organizers, Netroots Nation. It's being held in New Orleans this year and we need some help getting there and having a place to stay while we're there. 
We know there's SO much going on right now and that there are a lot of worthy causes to give to, but if you have an extra $5 (or $100) we would be so grateful for your support in helping us tell the world about what's happening here in la Frontera.

The Brown and Green coalition was an informal coalition of groups along the New Mexico/Mexico border, organizing together to push back on the administration’s excessive militarization of the border, directly impacting people, wildlife, and our public lands.

The uniquness of this coalition was the opportunity for organizers, activists and lawmakers, to come together and work beyond their own self interests, and cross mulitple intersections for the common good. Many across the country have found this to be a unique, valuable, and purposful coalition, and therefore was showcased at this years 2018 Netroots Nation in New Orleans.

NM Comunidades en Accion y de Fé (CAFé), Southwest Environmental Center (SWEC), Progress Now, Las Cruces Councilman, Gabe Vasquez, and State Representative Angelica Rubio participated at Netroots, honoring this coalition, and did so with the support of so many in our community.

To thank the community who collectively supported the efforts to get the team from Las Cruces to New Orleans, they invite you to join them in celebrating this amazing community on Tuesday, September 4, hosted by NM CAFé at 420 W. Griggs, from 6:00 to 7:30p. Hope you can join us!

We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who helped us make it to Netroots Nation this year. We all had a great time and made some really amazing connections with organizers around the country. We'll be sharing some of those stories in the coming days or weeks, but we're back now and excited to get back to work!
THANK YOU!
Lucas, Angelica, Johana, Gabe, & Kevin

This is amazing y’all, we’re nearly half way there and we probably are with some of the cash donations we’ve also received! Thank you so much. We’ve all been able to register and book a place to stay at this point. We couldn’t do this work without you, and your support means so much!!

-Angelica, Gabe, Johana, Kevin, & Lucas!
