Help Us Investigate

Searchlight New Mexico regularly conducts months-long investigations into systemic issues in New Mexico. When we conduct those in-depth stories, we first go out into the community to find the people who have experienced the issues firsthand. That is where you, our trusted readers, can help.
If you, or someone you may know, has experienced the issues that we are covering, please contact us and help us understand.
