The New Mexico Green Party records consists in large part of correspondence, flyers and brochures, newspaper clippings, newsletters, agendas, budgets, meeting minutes, and audio/video recordings. The collection is divided into 6 series. The largest series, "New Mexico Green Party," contains the bulk of material pertaining to political activism of the Green Party in New Mexico, and here is where the researcher can get a good sense of the strides made by the New Mexico Green Party. The other series also provide insight into the New Mexico Green Party and its connection to national politics, environmental activism, and social and ecological negotiations. The video and audio recordings are an important compliment to all the series, but most specifically to the political campaigns. This collection was amassed via several Green Party sources: Robert L.
