Senator Heinrich inspired by Arts & Sciences students
Senator Martin Heinrich visited our school this spring and spoke with students about issues related to climate change. See the video of his speech on the Senate floor on July 8, 2019, and read his Op-Ed in the Santa Fe New Mexican.
Here’s an excerpt from the Op-Ed:
“Last month, I sat down with some of these young leaders in a classroom at the Santa Fe School for the Arts & Sciences for a discussion on how we should confront the climate crisis. I was impressed with the students’ depth of knowledge on climate science and their observations of how climate change is already impacting their daily lives. Their eagerness for action at both the local and global level gave me great hope.”
