Center for Advocacy of Human Rights Update

Much has happened in recent months and I thought you should hear firsthand that The Center for Advocacy of Human Rights (CAHR) is in the process of being dissolved. For one thing, Little Rock Reed and I have gone our separate ways. Although he has indicated to me that he is finished with prisoners rights work, I really do not know what his future plans are. He is, however, still awaiting a decision from the New Mexico Supreme Court on his case.

As for me, I believe I can do more to reform the present criminal justice system by continuing my teaching in the criminal justice department at the University of New Mexico-Taos. Furthermore, I simply do not have the time to continue operating CAHR as I have just been elected President of the UNM-Taos faculty. In addition, I expect to be offered the position of coordinator of the criminal justice program here at Taos within the next month. I hope you
understand what a great opportunity this is for me to really make a difference.

Anyway, from now on, please save both your time and your stamps by not writing to us for assistance anymore.

Unfortunately, Little Rock left a paperwork nightmare behind when he walked away from the organization and frankly, I havent even known where to begin to try and clean up the mess. Consequently, I have been recycling what I can and throwing away and burning the rest. Thus, if you write to CAHR, it is more than likely that your mail will end up unopened in the burning barrel. I am sorry but I just dont know what else to do at this point.
Peace in the struggle.
