A resource guide for our supporters on how to support our Black community members

In the wake of the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, we have seen our community come together in a powerful movement. 

For many, this movement has sparked questions on how to get involved and support this cause. 

We worked diligently with our community partners and fans to put together a resource guide on how to support black New Mexico. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we encourage everyone to add to it.

If you know of a black-owned business, organization, or artist that we need to add to this guide, please email info@newmexicoutd.com.

Take to the streets.  If you or someone you know is arrested while protesting,  Senator Jacob Candelaria is offering free legal representation:
