Monday February 6, 2017
Where: Meet in the Capitol Building, Room TBD
When: 8:00 AM. All interested AAUW NM members are invited to participate in the AAUW Legislative Day at the Roundhouse. We will meet at 8:00 am in Room 326 to go over bills that we wish to bring to the attention of our elected representatives and senators.

Lunch is on your own at the Roundhouse cafeteria, and we can reconvene in Room TBD to eat lunch and discuss your actions. It is very likely that the topic will be “Paid Leave” which is a bill that AAUW-NM is working on with Southwest Women’s Lawyers Association and Interfaith Justice Workers. We will be eliciting other groups such as NOW, League of Women Voters NM, etc. as co-sponsors.
