Leaders with the Black New Mexico Movement have been out multiple times in the leadup to this election demonstrating for racial justice and working to get folks registered to vote. That’s what they were doing last month at a rally in Rio Rancho when their event was overtaken by counter-protestors. No More Normal executive producer Marisa Demarco spoke with BNMM organizer Barbara Jordan about her priorities this election season and racism in the city she calls home.

10/6 7p: This week, we heard the journeys that some New Mexicans have taken to find their voices and to make connections across the world.

Justin Allen and Kelly Garcia-Chavez, of the abolitionist group Millions For Prisoners- New Mexico, joined us to talk about finding your voice through your vote, and the fight to restore voting rights to incarcerated people.
