Educating and advocating, so that all who use NM roadways are respected, safe, and accountable.
VRUnm is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the safety of *vulnerable road users* in New Mexico. We raise awareness about road safety and provide resources and support to those whose lives are devastated by traffic violence.
If you would like to help support our cause, we would love to hear from you. Please visit our "Get Involved" page to learn about the different ways you can help. Together, we can make a difference and create a safer future for all road users!
*Vulnerable Road Users are any persons who are outside the protection of a motor vehicle. Walkers/runners, bicyclists, persons riding motorcycles, road crews, and many others are all vulnerable road users. They are at particular risk due to the far greater size, speed, and maneuverability of cars, trucks, and SUVs.
OUR BOARD of DIRECTORS
and ADVISORY COUNCIL
Executive Director, President
"I find it redemptive to share my husband's and my story! Talking about the hardships we experience daily because of a negligent driver really communicates how vital it is to make good choices behind the wheel of a motor vehicle."
"I work with VRUnm and other advocacy organizations because it's very important to me to be part of making roads safer for cyclists, pedestrians, and others in the Mesilla Valley."
"We all ask ourselves if we've done enough to make a difference in our world. Working with VRUnm is the perfect way for me to do that by sharing the message with everyone about using our roads safely."
David Alcala Garcia
"I am involved with VRUnm because I want to use the skills that I have to help spread awareness and to share this important message."
