Think New Mexico takes on issues that both sides of the political spectrum would like to ignore. They make sure the questions that need to be answered continue to be asked.

I was an intern with Think New Mexico during the summer of 2010. More than anything, the internship introduced me to the intricate political environment of New Mexico. Through researching potential initiatives and being involved in everything from helping to compose letters to the editor to sitting in on relevant Legislative Committee meetings, I learned about the government process in a very realistic setting that could never be emulated in a classroom. Before the internship, I had very little knowledge of politics in NM, however, afterwards I felt on even footing (well, at least one step closer) to my parents who have been involved in state politics for twenty five years. TNM's internship actually made interns feel needed by fostering an inclusive and positive office environment. I would highly recommend TNM's internship to others interested in non-profit and political work in NM!

As a New Mexican living in New York City, I have found in Think New Mexico the best investment of my charitable dollars in terms of having a lasting impact on the residents and environment of my home state. Each time Think New Mexico takes on a new issue - lottery reform, water rights, school reform - I marvel at their ability to garner support across the political spectrum. I appreciate Think New Mexico's focus as an organization, sticking to the issues they have committed to, even when it means forgoing new, perhaps sexier, campaigns. The fact that they have managed so many policy successes with a shoe-string staff further attests to the efficiency of their organizational model.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing TNM benefit all New Mexicans through innovative, non-partisan, progressive policy initiatives from protecting the state's vital water resources to repealing the food tax.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest they continue to engage rural and low-income New Mexican communities in the political process and in their policy campaigns - a complement to their successful internet activism efforts.

I've had an amazing experience interning at Think New Mexico for the past two summers, during which I’ve witnessed firsthand the impact that a dedicated non-profit can have on improving life for New Mexicans. It was very encouraging to work alongside a staff that truly and passionately cares about the well being of New Mexicans, and is willing to work so hard though research and advocacy to actually see results. In addition to the good work I’ve witnessed at Think New Mexico, I also gained substantial of experience as a student intern learning about how non-profits work and also getting a chance to do my own research and contribute my own ideas to initiatives and reports. Think New Mexico creates an atmosphere for interns and volunteers that promotes learning and gives New Mexicans a chance to see how we can make a difference.

As a student at New Mexico State University, I'm directly impacted and benefitted by Think New Mexico's efforts which helped bring reform and sustainability to the Lottery Scholarship program in the state. As a New Mexico citizen, I also appreciate Think New Mexico's work in repealing the state food tax, and more recently making sure it wasn't re-imposed during the last session. Other successful initiatives like title insurance reform benefit me and other New Mexicans on a daily basis.

I interned at Think New Mexico during the summer of 2010. As an intern, I did research on issues that the organization is currently focusing on as well as potential future topics. I also helped Think New Mexico with their fund raising and sat in on meetings with various political leaders in New Mexico. During my time at Think New Mexico, I was able to see and experience the impact that the organization has on the state. A goal-oriented think tank that doesn't get involved in partisan politics, Think New Mexico always has a bold approach to get their issues heard and accepted. Fred Nathan, Kristina Fisher, and the rest of the Think New Mexico staff are pragmatic, open-minded, and willing to do what it takes to get the job done. From its campaign against the passage of the food tax to its defense of small schools for all children in New Mexico, the organization fights every day for the well-being of New Mexicans.

My internship at Think New Mexico taught me about lobbying in New Mexico as well as about nonprofit organizations generally. I was able to observe how politics work in the state and study how to solve various problems that the state currently faces.
