Here, Now & Always, Roe V. Wade Impacts in Governor’s Race, and New Research on Drought

This week on New Mexico in Focus, the Line Opinion Panel is back to discuss how the reversal of Roe V. Wade will impact the race for Governor. One of the key questions will be whether the issue will drive turnout. Plus, our panelists react to new research showing how drought and rising temperatures contribute to each other, and what it means for us here in the southwest. And the Panel explores an upcoming ballot initiative that would pull money from the land bank permanent fund for use in education. Will it be an effective response to the Yazzie Martinez lawsuit? 

Our Land Executive Producer Laura Paskus sits down with a New Mexico hunter and gun owner to talk about the common narratives surrounding gun rights, and how he says groups like the NRA are skewing the conversation. Plus, correspondent Antonia Gonzales takes us inside the latest installment of Here, Now & Always, a permanent exhibit celebrating Native American Culture. Curators explain the intention behind this iteration of the exhibit at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, while giving a first-look at some of the extraordinary pieces of art.
