In a statement released on Thanksgiving Day last Thursday, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich of New Mexico called on President Obama to reroute the Dakota Access Pipeline. Senator Heinrich said that “the recent escalation against members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and those standing in solidarity with them is fundamentally wrong and must be condemned.”

Ellen Berkovitch spoke to the Senator by phone yesterday afternoon.

Today is the global day of giving known as "Giving Tuesday." The Giving Tuesday movement formed in 2012 partly as a response to the post-Thanksgiving Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping events.

The Santa Fe Community Foundation serves six counties in northern New Mexico. It helps philanthropists and individuals allocate their charitable giving in Northern New Mexico. KSFR asked Santa Fe Community Foundation's Christa Coggins about charitable giving in our community on this #GivingTuesday.
