What is Paint & Sip?
A painting event that will build capacity for NM ACT.
We need new members; individuals empowered to facilitate change that can impact our advocacy efforts and community, and who can further work to effect systemic change. It's a fun and creative way to give back and build capacity for NM ACT!
