What We Do
Santa Fe Forward builds community power to create a more vibrant future for our community. Our goal is civic engagement. We want more people voting, more people participating, and more people paying attention to what’s going on in our city.

Let’s make sure the voice of our community is heard when decisions are made that affect the lives of Santa Feans and the future of the city.

Santa Fe Forward will sponsor community conversations, register voters, and keep you informed on the issues that matter in our community through online communications and in-person community organizing. is the place to stay up to date on the issues you care about, share your opinion with polls on the hottest current issues, get recaps on city council meetings, and make your voice heard. Please check out our current poll on the initiative to get reduced marijuana penalties on the ballot in November. What do you think about the initiative? Let us know!
