FIGHTING FOR NM'S FAMILIES
Day has fought to make health care more affordable, protected those with preexisting conditions and has worked tirelessly to get New Mexico’s economy back on track.
STANDING UP FOR US

HOLDING THE POWERFUL ACCOUNTABLE
Day has led efforts in the NM Legislature to make government more accountable. She fought for legislation to increase transparency in political lobbying and supported efforts to make voting more accessible during the pandemic and beyond
Day sponsored HB21, the “Protect Our Voices Act,” signed by the Governor, to level the playing field for victims of harassment, retaliation or discrimination, preventing employers from forcing nondisclosure agreements as part of the settlement.
Day also worked with the Governor to sponsor the “Threats and Acts of Mass Violence” bill to expand the state’s Anti-Terrorism Act to criminalize terroristic threats and conduct. It created penalties for those make threats disrupting public educational or governmental institutions, including those who engage in cyberattacks against public institutions. The legislation originated from a bi-partisan Domestic Terrorism Summit convened by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham in 2019.
Day will fight for us to protect our access to affordable health care, fight for our children and public education, and she'll work non-stop to get our economy back on track:
Strong, steady leadership is more critical now than ever. During these difficult times, we can count on Day to keep our families safe, stand up to insurance companies to protect those with preexisting conditions, and make prescription drug prices more affordable.
Day voted to protect those with preexisting conditions and make prescriptions more affordable. And, she'll always fight for women's healthcare.
Education & Our Kids

Economy & Jobs
