Help Support Street Safe

We are lucky: A home, the ability to read, access to electricity and technology, clothing, and a caring community are privileges you and I likely have in common. Our community is not perfect, but it does offer many comforts and conveniences. But some among us are not so lucky.

I was moved by a presentation I heard tonight by Christine Barber, one of the founders of Street Safe, an all-volunteer nonprofit that serves women who have been victims of trafficking. Street Safe volunteers “prefer to be where we make a difference — on the street. Talking and laughing with the women we serve. Helping them stay alive.” By listening while giving out supplies, volunteers identify actions that can transform a life, create a new situation, and make possible a fuller humanity.

At our Saturday, March 25 CCC meeting, we will be collecting chocolate and supplies such as clothing, pads, and toiletries for Street Safe to give to women on the street. A list of supplies is below, and monetary donations can be made at Donations | Street Safe (streetsafenewmexico.org).



Women's clothing

Under-arm deodorant


Lip balm


Sleeping bags

Hotel-sized shampoo


Hotel-sized conditioner


Hotel-sized lotion

Nail polish


Safety whistles

Feminine wipes






Join me in supporting this important work.

We are building the bridge to a more just and equitable democracy as we cross it.

Yours in service and with gratitude,

Don’t miss the 2023 Ward/Precinct Elections and CCC Meetings

During the upcoming 2023 Democratic Party of Bernalillo County (DPBC) Ward, Precinct and County Central Committee (CCC) elections, active Dems will have the opportunity to gather (in person) and vote (online) for Ward and Precinct officers and additional members of the County Central Committee (CCC). Some of us may run for those offices. All of us will have the opportunity to elect leaders who support issues we care about.

The process begins with registration, Feb 1 – Mar 5, followed by in-person gatherings from Feb 18 - Mar 5. The voting period is Mar 7 - 11 and the CCC meeting happens Mar 25. Visit our DPBC website, where you’ll find the connections and information you need to register, participate, and stay in the know every step of the way.

West Side Dems Elect Officers


West Side Democrats to elect new officers!

It takes a village to guarantee the survival of West Side Dems. We almost lost that feeling of community, and we almost lost the West Side Dems during the pandemic. But we were able to revive the sense of community and WSD last fall. That resurrection kept the Westside blue.

So WSD is back and very much alive.

We win elections!

You can become part of this winning team. How?

Become a member ($10 a year) by clicking here — If you have been a member in the past but you have not paid your dues for 2023, you are not a current member.

Run for office — We are conducting an election for Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. If you have been a member for 30 days, you can run for office. Deadline for declaring candidacy is March 20.

Vote for your candidates of choice — Electronic voting begins March 27. You must be a member to receive a ballot.
