Greater ABQ Habitat for Humanity Classes 2/26/18 NM Voices for Children 12 p.m.
Originally called the Coalition for Children, New Mexico Voices for Children (NM Voices) was founded in 1987 by three pediatricians. Led by Dr. Robert Greenberg, the group sought a way to change the root causes of poor child well-being — causes like poverty, inadequate nutrition, violence, pollution, homelessness, and the like. They knew that such entrenched problems would only be solved by changing the systems that perpetuated them.
Join Legislative Director Bill Jordan for an overview of NM Voices and hear about the proposed children's advocacy issues from the just concluded NM legislative session.
