Step Up Steve is a group of 501c3 nonprofit organizations that came together around the common goal of educating the public and securing better outcomes from our elected officials on conservation and environmental policies. 

We are concerned that Steve Pearce’s voting record is out of touch with the positions of most southern New Mexicans on public lands, renewable energy, and conservation and want to raise attention so his constituents can ask him to “step up” and do a better job at fighting for their values. We want Steve Pearce to:

  • Stop trying to shrink Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument.
  • Support full funding and permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
  • Oppose legislation that would sell off or transfer our public lands to western states or would otherwise reduce or remove public lands protections.
  • Work to support protection of the public lands in New Mexico and across the nation.
  • Work to promote and drive down the cost of renewable energy, reduce our nation’s carbon emissions, and help America become a renewable energy leader.
