New Mexico needs residents actively involved in making a difference, and it needs communities serving as a galvanizing force to inform decision makers. HEP is creating spaces and processes to make this possible. We do this by connecting people, community groups, and decision makers. We bring together organizations and communities working on diverse movements. Our partnership is a statewide network that consists of four core partners and over 90 network members (grassroots organizations and community members in 15 counties) organizing and mobilizing around diverse issues. We primarily work with groups led by community members most directly impacted by the issues. In 2017, 1,006 community based stake holders were actively engaged in the HEP network and 161 organizations collaborated across sectors.
