A Conversation with Black Leaders in Albuquerque

Reform & Black Lives Matter What's Next 2020 07 22 Sonya clip

Sonya Smith urges being bold in keeping the conversation going. Social media is key to doing that.

Local leaders from the African American community came together for a conversation on July 22 to discuss “Reform and Black Lives Matter: What Next?” Organized by and featuring State Senate District 23 candidate and West Side Democrats member Harold Pope, Jr., the panelists included Sonya Smith, Brandi Stone, and Arthur Bell.

The panelists shared their thoughts about why there is more attention and outrage around the world after the murder of George Floyd. All of them agreed that the intersection of social media, the coronavirus pandemic, and the voices of young people demanding change are driving the Black Lives Matter movement at this time. Pope said thanks to social media, non-people of color are now putting themselves in the shoes of others they have witnessed being violated and asking, “What if that was me or someone that I loved?”

Southwest Albuquerque: A Community Pulling Together to Create Opportunity An Interview with Senator Linda Lopez

Linda Lopez
Senator Linda M. Lopez represents the Westgate area of Southwest Albuquerque and the South Valley north of Blake Road in the New Mexico State Senate, and she knows her neighborhood because she’s lived there for 25 years. When she moved to Westgate, the community seemed to her like an island because it was so separate from the rest of the city. It was a planned community which had areas designated for business, parks, churches and libraries, everything necessary for a good life. When she moved there, it was a growing community. There was an explosion of growth until 2008 and then the financial crisis hit, the economy plunged and the growth stopped. Since then, Southwest Albuquerque has been trying to catch up.
