Because ALL New Mexico families matter
- Rep. David Chavez
In New Mexico, we value our friends, community and families.
ALL of our families.
HJR 22 would deny thousands of New Mexico families the ability to protect themselves and the ones they love.
This is just wrong, and I respectfully ask you to please withdraw HJR 22.
In New Mexico we value diversity, and these kind of wedge issue debates do nothing but hurt our communities, and send painful messages to LGBT youth and children being raised in same-sex households.
I also urge you to instead focus on what matters most to New Mexicans: education, jobs, and the economy.
