DPNM Statement on Civil Rights Advances During 2020 Special Session

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today signed bills to establish a Civil Rights Commission in New Mexico and to require all law enforcement agencies to provide body cameras for officers. These bills are an important first step in addressing inequality and racism in policing. 

DPNM Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement regarding these civil rights and police accountability advances:

“Democrats in New Mexico’s state government have heard the calls for racial justice and taken critical steps toward accountability and progress. By requiring law enforcement agencies to provide body cams for their officers and establishing a Civil Rights Commission, New Mexico is making powerful strides toward providing legal remedies for New Mexicans whose rights have been violated by those sworn to protect and serve. We’re proud to see our legislature taking these first steps on the path toward achieving racial justice in policing.”
