U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich


U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) today announced the launch of the “Hometown Heroes” initiative to shine a spotlight on some of the local heroes who are stepping up to serve their fellow New Mexicans during the coronavirus pandemic.

“The coronavirus pandemic has brought upon some of the most challenging times many of us will ever face. But it has also shown us how dependent we are on one another for support. So many New Mexicans are showing up in moving ways to demonstrate our state’s trademark creative tenacity and incredible ingenuity in the service of others,” said Heinrich. “I’m asking for New Mexicans to nominate heroes in their communities so I can help uplift their stories. These New Mexicans are a real inspiration and give me hope that there is still real good happening in the midst of such a daunting time.”

Individuals can nominate a New Mexico Hometown Hero by clicking here. Senator Heinrich is also encouraging New Mexicans to post on social media about heroes in their communities using the hashtag #HometownHeroesNM.
