About NM Cafe:
We believe that our organization’s source of power comes from our base.
We believe that our base is made up of directly impacted people, people of faith deeply rooted in justice and each other, who will lead the fight to shift New Mexico politics.
We believe that our organizers and our leaders have a clear racial and economic analysis that informs our political imaginations.
We believe in a culture of formation, investment, and leadership development for our leaders, our staff, and our board of directors.
Faith based organizing serves people. NM CAFé aspires creates a supportive culture. We empower New Mexicans to act on their own. They deserve a better quality of life.
NM CAFé serves as a crucial actor in the political landscape in southern New Mexico. We create a “land of opportunity” by challenging our elected leaders. In turn, they put families’ needs and the common good of New Mexico first.
At the helm of our efforts, we have strong leaders. They play a pivotal role in healing the state. They restore people’s confidence in responsive government, which promotes opportunity for all.
