UNITE NM Home

Our Mission

Unite New Mexico is a movement of Democrats, Republicans, Greens, Libertarians, independents, and “declined to states” who are committed to bridging the growing partisan divide in order to tackle our largest challenges and leave a better state for future generations.

The political parties and special interests try every day to pit us against each other for their own benefit. We’ve had enough. We know that it’s our unity—and the values we share in common—that has always been the source of our state’s strength.

Unite New Mexico is a movement of Democrats, Republicans, and independents who are committed to bridging the growing partisan divide in order to tackle our largest challenges and leave a better state for future generations.

Together, with our voices and our votes, we will rise above today’s divisions and pioneer a new way forward for New Mexico and our country.

Our Challenge

As Democrats and Republicans move further to their respective extremes, New Mexico’s state legislature has become more polarized than ever. The two major parties fight to deadlock, but then collude to rig the rules against competition in the marketplace of campaigns and elections.

Our Solution

We believe fixing our broken political system begins with the courage to do something new: electing leaders who don’t just say they are different, but who actually are different.

Our mission is to elect common sense, independent candidates to office who can represent the people –– not the party bosses or special interests.

Once in office, these independents can be our voice, present new ideas, and work with both sides to get things done.

Our Strategy

Our ambitious but achievable “Fulcrum Strategy” is focused on electing a sufficient number of independent leaders to the state legislature who, as a coalition, could deny both parties an outright majority and use their incredible leverage to forge common ground solutions.

The need is apparent, the opportunity is here, and the time is right. Join us.
