Just Announced. News that environmental rights attorney from Taos, Kyle Tisdel, is running for New Mexico's 3rd Congressional District - the seat opening up as Ben Lujan runs for US Senate.

From a press release..."Kyle has an intimate understanding of the climate crisis and is advancing a plan for action that aims to secure a livable future for our children. This plan is centered around justice for those most affected by the energy transition, as well as those most impacted by the climate-driven disasters our nation is already experiencing. "

...”Kyle’s work in New Mexico includes the fight to protect the sacred Greater Chaco Landscape from the ravages of oil and gas exploitation, which threaten cultural sites and indigenous communities. While representing environmental and Diné organizations in federal court, Kyle has won protection for over 20,000 acres in the Santa Fe National Forest from being sold for oil and gas development, and challenged federal approval for hundreds of fracking permits across Greater Chaco for failing to consider the cumulative impacts on people and the environment. "

..."These wins not only protect our public lands, but reduce air and water pollution that harms the health of people living in the shadow of fossil fuel exploitation. Kyle’s recent victories also include half a dozen precedent-setting climate cases in federal courts across the country. These critical victories hold the administration accountable to the scientific reality and timeline of the climate emergency, and set the stage for rapid climate progress to be made under new leadership.”
