Judy Calman moved to New Mexico towards the end of 2001, inspired by a life-long fascination with the West. After completing degrees in Biology and Philosophy and working on several political campaigns, she realized her true passion to be environmental policy. She completed her law degree at the University of New Mexico, as well as a Masters in Environmental Law and Policy at the Vermont Law School. She has worked at the City of Albuquerque as an Energy and Wildlife Consultant, with WildEarth Guardians on endangered species litigation, and at an environmental law firm in Atlanta opposing new coal plants. For the past three years, Judy has been helping New Mexico Wilderness Alliance ensure that federal agencies are complying with environmental laws, working to propose more federal lands for Administrative protections, and appealing agency actions that are particularly damaging to public lands. She represented NMWA in the statewide pit rule hearings last year, is currently appealing several BLM oil and gas decisions to the Interior Board of Land Appeals, and has filed suit against the Department of Justice for a damaging policy regarding Mexican wolves.
The Albuquerque Friends Meeting House is located at the corner of 5th and Bellamah. From I-40, take the 6th street exit, then South to Bellamah.
