New Mexico is one of only a handful of states without any meaningful way to clear past arrest or conviction records. People with criminal records face enormous barriers to employment, safe housing, and myriad other “collateral consequences of conviction” as a result.
The New Mexico legislature is just one of the ways that we advance civil liberties in our state, and we spend a significant amount of time engaging in the legislative process each year.
We aim to support bills that strengthen our rights guaranteed under the Constitution and defeat bills that threaten them. See below for the legislation we're supporting this year.
