Teresa Leger Fernandez

State: New Mexico

Elected Office: U.S. Representative

Candidate District: NM-03

Reason for Endorsement:

Teresa Leger Fernandez has shown through her career as an attorney and advocate that she cares about her community, and we believe the 3rd district will have a true champion with Teresa in Congress.

As an attorney, Teresa has worked tirelessly to advance voting rights, promote tribal sovereignty, protect New Mexico’s traditional acequia waters, promote affordable housing, and secure millions in funding to help build schools, health clinics, and infrastructure. She has also served as general and special counsel to Native American Pueblos and Tribal Nations.

When New Mexico's Third Congressional District seat opened, Teresa knew it was time to take her career of serving communities across New Mexico to the federal level. She’s eager to make a greater impact on the issues that so fundamentally affect people’s lives -- from access to healthcare and economic opportunity to climate change and cultural preservation.

Teresa is running to take the bold and courageous action to protect what people love and need: our communities, our democracy, our planet, and our future. We are behind her and know that the grassroots will support her now and once she is in Congress.

Corrales Indivisible nominated Teresa Leger Fernandez for a national endorsement. If you would like to join the group or get involved, you can find them on Facebook.
