New Mexicans sharing their stories about the impact of climate change on their lives and livelihoods
The Land Witness Project is
a collection of stories about:
  • FAMILIES & TRADITIONS

  • DOUBT & WORRY

  • LAND & WATER

  • LOVE & COMMITMENT

 

These stories illuminate climate change-related dangers and opportunities for ordinary New Mexicans to take action right now to protect our home.

We invite you to listen and watch, read and reflect, engage and share.
