The New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty is dedicated to advancing economic and social justice through education, advocacy and litigation. We work with low-income New Mexicans to improve living conditions, increase opportunities and protect the rights of people living in poverty.
Each year, the Center generates changes to laws, policies, or programs that help tens of thousands of low-income New Mexicans fend off poverty. Your tax-deductible donation to the NM Center on Law and Poverty will further this work to ensure that low-income families can feed their families, access medical care, and keep a roof over their heads.
