Message from the Chair
I suspect I spent most of the past week like you: totally transfixed with the impeachment trial in Washington. While that is certainly important – accountability matters – we also have a lot of work that we need to do right here at home. While we certainly know the outcome of the deliberations in Washington, we do not know what will happen in our own community. That is where we must get involved.
So here is my shameless reminder to everyone that we desperately need help locally. Ward meeting started this past weekend. Please visit berncodems.org in order to see when your ward meeting is happening. We need more ward and precinct chairs on the west side, so please consider running for some of the open positions. Ward and precinct chairs are the party’s representative in the community.
Additionally, please consider running for the State Central Committee. Among other things, the SCC will be responsible for voting for the democratic candidate for the vacant CD1 seat. It’s a great place to get involved with the Democratic Party of New Mexico while making sure your voice is heard.
I have one final ask. If the above does not suit you, please consider volunteering for us. We have a lot of different positions that are in urgent need in the West Side Dems! Please see the other article in the newsletter for more information.
I hope to see you all in positions that suit you best! Until then, please stay safe!
Demand Justice from ICE for Children and Families
During the Trump administration, thousands of children have been separated from their families, deported, or remain in US custody. Has anything changed under the new administration?

The WSD 2020 Annual Report is now available.
Click HERE to read more.
The report presents the WSD 2020 goals (that came from the January 2020 brainstorming session) and addresses how each goal was addressed in WSD activities throughout the year.
While the COVID-19 pandemic caused WSD to redirect activities to only those allowed by the state-mandated safety restrictions, most of the 2020 were met in mostly virtual ways.

To Serve the 88,000 Democrats Living on the West Side
We encourage and support candidates who will work for the good of everyone in our community. We believe in a government that is truly “of the people, by the people, and for the people”…not just for corporations, Wall Street, or the rich.
United By A Common Goal…
Social justice and human rights are more important than corporate profits. We seek to improve the quality of life for all of our residents through grass-roots support of candidates who listen and work to implement liberal programs and legislation.
Your candidates can’t win without your help. Canvassing, phone banking, word-of-mouth, volunteering, and donating are all ways to work together to achieve our common goals.
