Albuquerque Interfaith/IAF makes play for statewide impact: Launches Legislative Strategy to Restore Investments in Children & Families
Look for Albuquerque Interfaith/IAF to be crawling all over the New Mexico State Capitol in Santa Fe during this year's legislative session. About an hour away from Albuquerque - the state's largest city - the broadbased citizens organization is stepping out. Focus: 1) Neighborhood Preservation, Community Safety and the Criminal Justice System; 2) Strengthening Schools and Public Education for All; 3) Immigrant Justice, Worker Protection and Workforce Development; and 4) Rebuilding Behavioral Health System and Health Security for All.
During the meeting, supporters of teachers formed a picket line outside Emily Griffith High School. As protesters marched up and down the sidewalk, speakers invited to the event by Industrial Areas Foundation of Colorado, a consortium of unions, religious institutions and community activists, spoke about standing in solidarity with teachers.
