A resident of Albuquerque since 1988, Sype says he’s running for president in 2016 to help Democrats make their pitch. “I believe the Democratic Party has the better story to tell, the better solutions to propose to our pressing problems, but we have failed to effectively organize around a coherent narrative.”

Black History and Community

BLM Black History March

          On that arc of the moral universe that we sure hope bends toward justice, it’s important that we celebrate and lift up our communities. That’s why the Black Lives Matter “Our Black History” march this weekend is all about community. Gather at the University Arena (otherwise known as “The Pit”) at noon on Saturday, Feb. 24, when organizers lead marchers through our neighborhoods to Dennis Chavez Community Center. Expect barbecue, vendors, performers, speakers and activities at the community center throughout the afternoon. All who support Black Lives Matter are welcome to this free event.
