AARP New Mexico

Working for you right here at home on things that matter to you
AARP New Mexico will be conducting three shred events across the state, in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces, on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to noon, allowing people to shred some of their documents for free.
“One of AARP’s main priorities is finding more resources for our family caregivers, many of which are trying to balance work and caring for a loved one,” said Othiamba Umi, AARP New Mexico’s Advocacy Director. “Paid Family and Medical Leave could provide up to 12 weeks of paid leave to give working family caregivers the much-needed flexibility and resources to care for themselves or loved ones should a serious illness arise and traditional sick leave just isn’t enough,” Umi said.
AARP New Mexico’s top priority for the upcoming 2024 Legislative Session will be passing legislation that establishes paid family medical leave, but the state office will also focus on broadband expansion, lowering prescription drug costs and funding for senior programs, among others.
AARP Community Challenge grants fund quick-action projects that help communities become more livable by improving public places, transportation, housing, digital connections, and more. Now in its eighth year, the program is part of AARP’s nationwide Livable Communities initiative, which supports the efforts of cities, towns, neighborhoods and rural areas to become great places to live for all residents, especially those age 50 and older.
AARP is here to help you take on today – and every day. From sharing practical resources, to holding fun activities and events, AARP is providing opportunities to connect and help build an even stronger New Mexico. We hope you’ll join us!

In 2023, the Minnesota Legislature passed a law directing the Secretary of State to conduct a study of issues related to voter engagement, education, and improvements to the election system. A survey on voting in Minnesota is the first opportunity for the public to provide input on whether they vote, where they get information about how to vote, barriers they face when voting, and other items. The Office of the Secretary of State (OSS) asked Management Analysis and Development (MAD) to conduct this survey to gather initial public input and comment on what works well for voters in Minnesota, what barriers voters face, and what improvements could be made to the voting process.
