We’ll also hear an in-depth report on the New Mexico Civil Rights Act, which was recently signed into law by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.

And…join us for a conversation with Mary Parr-Sanchez, President of the National Education Association-New Mexico.  She addresses the challenges in returning to in-person learning and the funding needs for education statewide.
