2012 NMEEA F.I.R.E. AWARD RECIPIANTS 

 The NMEEA is a New Mexico origin collective of youth, community members, educators and allies. As we live in a multicultural state and planet, we reject the hidden agenda in the current U.S. educational system that posits the dominance of one group over all others. This dominance pervades economics, politics, ideology and culture. Our current educational system is founded on this dominance. We work to transform our educational system into one that is truly inclusive, equitable and just, which means:  a living system, dynamic, ever deepening our understanding of our interdependence, reflecting all our perspectives; that is transparent, rigorous, critical, and determined and controlled by local communities.

A new campaign to curb underage drinking launches Monday.

It’s called MyInstead and it’s a new interactive website designed to tell kids about how drinking can be dangerous.

New Mexico is at the top of the list of states where kids have a drink before the age of 13.

The campaign includes TV commercials and the website.

”So this whole campaign was built around you know attracting kids with social media website,” Melissa Dosher with NMDOT said. “It’s also interactive, it gives them a chance to produce their own videos and upload them so we’re hoping that this really attracts kids.”

Governor Martinez is expected to unveil the new campaign at Bernalillo Middle School.
