Last year, many of you were able to join us in Chicago for the most successful membership meeting to date, where more than 320 representatives from 66 jurisdictions came together to swap tactics, gain inspiration, and build momentum for this growing movement to advance racial equity.
This year promises to be even more sensational as GARE moves into its fifth year of building a national network of local government! GAREing Up for Impact will explore how, as this movement comes of age, we demonstrate that the change we believe is critical for our communities is not only possible, but is happening.
The event’s theme is GAREing Up For Impact!, exploring how as our movement comes of age, we are demonstrating that the change we believe is critical for our communities is not only possible, is happening. The event will be designed to support teams representing the breadth of knowledge and skill-level of your jurisdiction. The event will feature some of the things you’ve loved about past gatherings and some new features incorporated by popular demand.
New Mexico Congresswoman, Deb Haaland
Congresswoman Haaland grew up in a military family; her father was a 30-year combat Marine who was awarded the Silver Star Medal for saving six lives during Vietnam, and her mother is a Navy veteran who was a federal employee for 25 years in Indian education. As a single mother, she volunteered at her daughter’s pre-school in order to afford an early childhood education. Like many New Mexicans, she had to rely on food stamps at times as a single parent, has lived paycheck-to-paycheck, and struggled to put herself through college. Though hard work and determination, she earned degrees from the University of New Mexico and UNM Law School. For several years, she ran her own small business producing and canning Pueblo Salsa and later became the first Chairwoman elected to the Laguna Development Corporation Board of Directors. She is a 35th generation New Mexican who is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna, and has Jemez Pueblo heritage. After a lifetime of organizing communities to stand up for New Mexico families, Congresswoman Deb Haaland was elected as one of the first Native American women to serve in Congress
