Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below State Senate races on your ballot.

  • Veronica Krupnik is running in the Democratic Primary for Senate District 24. Krupnik currently works as Leadership Analyst for the Office of House Majority Leader Representative Gail Chasey. Previously, she worked as Program Coordinator for CASA, Lead Community Facilitator for Tewa Women United’s Tribal Youth Program, and as a Data Use & Capacity Workgroup Consultant for Casey Family Programs.

    Her volunteer and leadership experience includes serving as Vice President for CASA’s board, Co-founder of CASA’s Young Professional Philanthropists Initiative, Chair of the Young Democrats of Santa Fe County, and as a volunteer for the Santa Fe Indigenous Center. She also served a 3-year term on the National Foster Youth and Alumni Policy Council, where she advocated for children navigating immigration status.

    Krupnik is motivated to run for Senate District 24 by her lived experience as an Indigenous Commit leader and profound commitment to advocating for the rights and resources of children and families. She is also focused on addressing the historical underrepresentation of American Indian/Alaskan Native communities in elected offices, and is motivated by her first hand experience with the foster care system in New Mexico.

    Her priorities include transitioning New Mexico to fully renewable energies, increasing pay for educators across the state, and establishing a tribal education fund. Additionally, she would focus on immigration policies that move us away from detaining immigrants and towards more human centered policies. She also supports LGBTQ2S+ liberation, working families, and a 32-hour work week. She has a track record of providing essential context and policy support on education, healthcare, and issues and priorities relating to the protection of children and families in New Mexico, specifically those system-impacted by child welfare, and also worked on the Dignity Not Detention Act (SB145). She supports the Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program through HUD, and is committed to making significant investments in holistic community safety beyond policing.

    We recommend Veronica Krupnik for Senate District 24 based on her community organizing experience, policy work, and lived experience.

  • Anna C. Hansen is running in the Democratic Primary for Senate District 24. She did not return a candidate questionnaire, so the information presented is gathered only through public sources. Hansen currently serves as Commissioner, District 2 for Santa Fe County, and previously worked as Director of Community Building and Development for Oshara Village, Art Director and founding member of Green Fire Times, and owned/managed Dakini Design & Photography.

    Trujillo supports closing deportation centers, is committed to supporting legislation that ensures prohibiting discrimination of LGBTQ individuals, supports access to reproductive healthcare, prioritizes expanding access to substance disorders and mental healthcare providers, and supports abolishing the rent control ban while calling for NM to take action to limit gentrification. She also supports common sense gun safety, and has outlined a five step plan to reverse the trend of police violence in our communities.
