Good Morning!

Hello Everyone,

It's been a busy summer for us at NAVA, we have welcomed in two interns from the NMSYTE program who we are very excited to have. We are ramping up for General Election Season coming up this November, and are excited to be getting our organizing, and engagement programs moving. We hope you will join us if you have the time, and have an excellent summer!
It's always important to make sure you're registered to vote! Even if you know you've registered in the past, there's nothing wrong with making sure that you are up to date!
Victory for Native Students!
A state court ruled this Friday July 20th, that the states treatment of Native Students violates New Mexico's constitution calling for more reasonable, updated standards for supporting and educating our next generation of Native Students. This ruling should improve the quality of education and overall life for Native Students living in New Mexico Here is a link for some further reading!
