Dear Las Crucens, There were recently two local interviews about the Referendum Project, and why we are challenging laws that allow transgender and abortion care without parental consent as well as laws that undermine the security of our elections. In case you are interested, here are links to the two interviews. KTAL Progressive Radio Interview Joan Scherer (CCIA) and I had a 1-hour interview on KTAL radio. This interview was hosted by Peter Goodman (who is a attorney and municipal judge), with Daisy Maldonado. KTAL is a progressive radio station, and the other guest on the show was Abraham Sanchez from Progress Now NM (which is a progressive activism organization).
