The Student Solidarity Coalition
UNM LEAF is a proud member of the Student Solidarity Coalition. The SSC is a coalition of student groups and organizations at UNM dedicated to standing in solidarity with one another and fighting for the rights of UNM students.
The coalition began in Spring 2021, when we realized that collaboration between organizations on campus was already happening, but not in a formal setting. Many groups on campus shared similar goals and ideas, and we thought that by building a coalition and standing in solidarity, we could generate real momentum for change at the University of New Mexico. The SSC is an avenue for groups on campus to communicate, advocate, and learn from and with each other.
The UNM Kiva Club is now one of many Native American organizations at UNM but is one of the largest and oldest student lead Native American organization in the United States. Their goal is to encourage student and community involvement with Native American Issues and events at UNM and in the surrounding communities.

The UNM College Democrats work to improve our community by engaging in activism and advocacy on a local and national level. Issues we advocate for include reducing the price of college, making housing and healthcare affordable, and fighting corruption in New Mexican politics. This club is not officially affiliated with the Democratic Party so we are free to take stances and make statements that the official Democratic Party may not agree with.
UNM LEAF (Leaders for Environmental Action and Foresight)
We are a coalition of students, faculty, staff, and alumni at the University of New Mexico who recognize that we now face an accelerating climate crisis with only a short window of time to avert the catastrophic consequences of our current trajectory. UNM needs to declare a Climate Emergency and vow to create a waste & carbon free campus, invest in environmentally aware education and research, and divest from fossil fuels.
