ALBUQUERQUE – Gloria La Riva, the Party for Socialism and Liberation’s candidate for president of the United States will be campaigning in Albuquerque Wednesday, Oct. 26.
Born and raised in Albuquerque, La Riva is a graduate of Manzano High School and has decades of experience as a community activist and labor organizer, and has been active in the anti-war movement since the 1970s. La Riva is running for president of the United States with Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement, and is the first Socialist candidate for president to reach the ballot in the state since 1992.
