U.S. Senator Tom Udall will hold a series of virtual events open to the media during the week of July 13, 2020. To attend any or all of these events, please RSVP to email@example.com.
On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at 1:15 p.m. MT, U.S. Senator Tom Udall will hold a listening session with young people of color and community leaders of color from southern New Mexico about access to and the importance of protecting the Gila River and its watershed. Udall and Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) introduced landmark protections for the river in May to designate portions of the Gila River as Wild and Scenic and preserve the largest remaining network of naturally flowing river segments in the Southwest.
On Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. MT, Udall will hold a press call with New Mexico DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, and join their call for Congress to pass the Dream and Promise Act. The bill would give young Americans brought to the United States as children certainty and the ability to plan their futures without fear of deportation from the only country they have ever known. The press call comes following a recent Supreme Court decision that struck down the Trump administration’s attempt to end the DACA program.
On Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. MT, Udall will hold a listening session with New Mexicans who have benefited from the expanded health coverage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and health care providers who have seen firsthand the benefits of the law. Udall supports efforts to protect 23 million Americans from losing health insurance due to the Trump administration’s pending legal attempts to gut the ACA during the COVID 19 pandemic.
