New Mexico First generally convenes one statewide town hall every year. This town hall focuses on a topic that has statewide interest, priority, and potential impact. For each topic, we:

  • Conduct extensive research.
  • Convene a series of citizen dialogues around the state.
  • Develop a layperson’s background report as preparation for participation in the town hall.

Then, people engage in a deliberative town hall that produces concrete, actionable recommendations for the legislature and other policymakers.
