10th Annual Legal Service Providers Conference: Fighting Multi-Generational Poverty in New Mexico

Registration and payment for the program must be received prior to the program date. A $20 late fee will be incurred when registering the day of the program.

New Mexico for too many years has been ranked as the second highest overall poverty rate of any state in the U.S. Only Mississippi is worse. Of even greater concern: New Mexico ranks highest in the poverty rate for children. The fight to end children’s poverty cannot succeed unless the legal and economic problems of the entire family are addressed. With the reality of cuts to public spending, advocates fighting childhood poverty are challenged to do more with less, making imperative the need for creative and collaborative efforts. This training is designed to help legal aid staff, pro bono attorneys and other public interest advocates better understand how to spot, respond to, and find co-counsel or other expert help for common issues likely to keep a family with children trapped in poverty. In this training, you will also learn about resources and collaborative means which can minimize the impact of poverty and ensure that children in our state are benefitting from every resource our communities can offer. Whether you represent children, parents, grandparents or even great-grandparents, this training will include topics that impact the financial security and well-being of all low-income New Mexico families.
