Kristen Greer Love Calls on New Mexico Governor to Rescind Executive Order Threatening Free Speech

Kristin Greer Love (’09), Senior Civil Liberties Attorney at the ACLU of New Mexico, published an opinion for the Albuquerque Journal condemning the potential impact of Executive Order 2022-118 on the right to protest Israel’s actions (“Gov’s Dangerous Executive Order Could Silence Protected Speech in New Mexico,” Dec. 24). “[W]e take a strong position against state censorship. We will zealously defend New Mexicans’ speech rights, especially when state censorship targets those who also face racism or other oppression, including Jewish and Palestinian people. . . . Restrictions on peaceful speech, protest, and expression have no place in our democracy.”
