The New Mexico Civil Rights Act is about fairness, justice, and equal treatment under law regardless of your race, income, or background. It would allow for New Mexicans to seek out and obtain justice in New Mexico state courts, holding public officials who violate our rights accountable for their actions. The blanket defense of qualified immunity shields bad actors from accountability and it allows for misconduct by public officials to go unaddressed, leaving family members without an avenue to seek justice.
Tell legislators: Pass the New Mexico Civil Rights Act.
