It goes without saying that we live in a politically fraught and challenging time. With a federal government that actively seeks the erasure of the rights and liberties of LGBTQ+ folk and communities of color, it is incumbent on all of us to come together to defend and advance those hard-fought wins made over the course of generations.
At the Equality New Mexico Foundation (EQNM), New Mexico’s statewide LGBTQ+ advocacy and education organization, we envision a world in which oppression is obsolete and all aspects of identity are honored. Through our work, we seek to advance equitable and inclusive solutions for all New Mexicans.
Every single dollar EQNM
receives goes toward
creating change across
5 priority areas:
Health & Wellness - all New Mexicans have equitable access to what they need to be healthy;
Education - all New Mexico schools are safe, accessible, and equitably funded;
Economy - New Mexicans create and manage family assets because they have access to a job & access to quality benefits;
Civic Engagement - New Mexicans develop their own civic identities and actively participate in society;
Justice - New Mexico communities are safe, strong, and accepting; the
justice system is fair and equitable.
We believe that every LGBTQ+ New Mexican is a vital community member in our Land of Enchantment, that we are more than just our LGBTQ+ identities, and that the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ+ New Mexicans is crucial to creating a stronger, more balanced world. This belief compels us to challenge structural and individual barriers that limit our self-determination and ability to thrive.
Every investment to EQNM is crucial to ensuring the rights and liberties of LGBTQ+ New Mexicans are advanced and protected.
