2022 Rising Star

October 1, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The New Mexico Democrats and Chair Jessica Velasquez could not be more excited to announce our annual Rising Star event on Saturday, October 1st, 2022 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque. The VIP reception will begin at 4:30 PM and the main event will begin at 5:30 PM.

Rising Star is our yearly fall event and our largest fundraiser where we honor select up-and-coming Democratic leaders in our state who have distinguished themselves through their activism and commitment. Reserve your ticket for the 2022 Rising Star Here today. This year we could not be more proud to announce that we are honoring Gabe Vasquez, candidate for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District and the recently elected all-woman City Council of Las Cruces as rising stars within the Democratic Party.

This year our Special Guest is Jessica Cisneros from Texas, an immigration and human rights attorney who catapulted onto the national stage as a progressive leader with her recent run for Congress in Texas.

We also invite you to join the Rising Star VIP reception, held before the main event, which is an exclusive opportunity to mingle with elected officials.

The Rising Star is when we bring together New Mexicans who are passionate about electing Democrats and highlighting emerging leaders in our Party. As our most important event of the year, we hope you’ll support the Democratic Party at the 2022 Rising Star.

P.S. Included with every ticket purchase is catering from M’tucci’s and Pop Fizz.
