There are many things you can do depending on the amount of time you have and your interests. If you don’t have time but can give money, that is also greatly appreciated. You can either donate to one of the groups that are supporting this website (Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety [CCNS], Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment [MACE], and Partnership for Earth Spirituality) or to one of the groups working on local and specific threats to New Mexico that you’ll find throughout this website. Even a little bit helps.

If you have time to volunteer, working with groups that are addressing these issues can be most effective–even if only as part of a phone- or email-tree to contact elected officials. Writing or calling these officials can be surprisingly effective, particularly if you coordinate with others. Just signing email petitions can help. Check out the Useful Links page to find ways to reach these officials and to get more information.
