Guests enjoy food, drink, and great company at the beautiful Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

On Thursday, April 14th, we celebrated the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty’s 20th Anniversary with a memorable event at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. It was wonderful to see so many people come together to recognize the impact our organization has made on the lives of low-income New Mexicans.

Please enjoy a few photos of the evenings’ festivities. Photography services were provided by Ideum, our Champion Level Sponsor.
