and some officers 'were catering to the rioters'
In 1982, four Black attorneys filled a void in the New Mexico legal community. There was no entity in place that addressed the particular needs of African American attorneys in the state.
Today, that group of four has now expanded to over 75 attorneys who hold dear to the original tenets of the organization: to conduct a program of continuing legal education for the membership; to improve the method of judicial selection and tenure; to study the needs of the State and community for legislation, and to protect the civil rights of the citizens of the community though the legal profession.Website
After hundreds of years of watching black people killed at the hands of law enforcement, Black New Mexico Movement stands up against police brutality, calling for a complete reform and accountability for those that are charged with protecting us. Through solidarity, we strive to use love, unity, and genuine community to push the needle towards true change with the voices of black, Indigenous, and all people of color.
