Voices of Los Alamos is a progressive political activism group aligned with the national Indivisible movement, and was born out of the Women’s March on Washington in response to the new administration. The local advocacy group was created as a way for Los Alamos residents to voice their concerns over the current political events (both at the state and federal level) and give people a space to gather together, discuss and form action plans.

At the monthly meeting, local experts present different topics, ranging from the environment to the 2018 elections, from immigration to health care, and share ideas on how to make our voices heard by our county and state representatives. We allow some time each meeting for members to share actions they’re interested in supporting. The membership is inclusive and fluid.
