The Albuquerque Human Rights Board meeting scheduled for May 19, 2022, has been canceled.

05/05/2022

With the establishment of the New Mexico Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Relatives (MMIWR) Task Force in 2019, the New Mexico Indian Affairs Department (IAD) has recruited, vetted, and supported the Task Force to conduct a study and complete a report about the scope of the issue. Upon completing this task, the Task Force expanded to include more committed stakeholders who focused on working collaboratively to develop a State Response Plan to fight this epidemic. This Native-led, community-centered, inclusive approach brings together survivors, families, advocates, healers, law enforcement, academics, policy makers, data analysts, lawyers, faith leaders, and others to find solutions that are grounded in best practices and a deep understanding of Tribal and Pueblo communities.

Women In Leadership Presents
Monday, February 07, 2022: 1:30-3:00pm
CULTURAL IDENTITY
Cultural identity is an important contributor to people's wellbeing. Identifying with a particular culture helps people feel they belong and gives them a sense of security. An established cultural identity has also been linked with positive outcomes in areas such as health and education.

Stephanie D. McIver, PhD has practiced clinical psychology for 25 years and is now both the Director of Counseling Services at UNM’s Student Health and Counseling Center and founder of the New Mexico Black Mental Health Coalition. She serves on the Boards of Directors of the Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors and the ACES Tech Public Academy opening soon in the International District.

Our mission is to uplift, empower, and inspire women to develop self -advocacy skills in order to become leaders through personal and professional growth by
providing access to leadership development and educational opportunities.

The New Mexico Disability, Access and Functional Needs (DAFN) Coalition is inviting you to a special virtual presentation:

Dispelling 5-11 y/o COVID Vaccine Misinformation - Thursday January 6th. 2022 1:00PM to 2:00 PM

Via Zoom with Closed Captioning and Live ASL Interpretation

Scheduled Presenters and Guest Panelists:

Dr. Walter Dehority MD Associate Professor of Pediatric Infectious Disease at UNM.
Dr. Dehority was part of the national clinical trials of the Pfizer COVID vaccine for children
UNM professor to consult on vaccine documentary (krqe.com)

Dr. Sandra Whisler MD, MS - Professor Emeritus UNM SOM
Physician in private practice in Albuquerque

Dr. Christopher Novak MD - NMDOH Public Health Division Medical Director

Dr. Miranda Durham MD – NMDOH Medical Director for the Department's Northwest Region

We encourage you to join us for this special presentation. Accurate vaccine information is critical and can help stop common myths and rumors. It can be difficult to know which sources of information you can trust. Learn more about finding credible vaccine information for you and your children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 5 years and older get a COVID-19 vaccination. Because children and youth with specialized health needs and disabilities may be at higher risk for more severe illness from COVID-19, families and caregivers are asked to strongly consider vaccinating children with any underlying health condition or disability. This is a great opportunity to listen and engage with a panel of New Mexico medical professionals and public health subject matter experts.



Jueves 6 de Enero del 2022 1:00PM a las 2:00 PM

A través de la plataforma Zoom con subtitulado e interpretación ASL en directo

Presentadores y panelistas invitados programados:

Dr. Walter Dehority MD Profesor Asociado de Enfermedades Infecciosas Pediátricas en la UNM.
El Dr. Dehority formó parte de los ensayos clínicos nacionales de la vacuna COVID de Pfizer para niños
Profesor de la UNM para consultar sobre el documental de la vacuna
UNM professor to consult on vaccine documentary (krqe.com)

Dra. Sandra Whisler MD, MS - Profesora Eméritas UNM SOM
Pediatra en consulta privada en Albuquerque

Dr. Christopher Novak MD - Director Médico de la División de Salud Pública del NMDOH

Dra. Miranda Durham MD - Directora Médica del NMDOH para la Región Noroeste del Departamento

Le animamos a que nos acompañe en esta presentación especial. La información exacta sobre las vacunas es fundamental y puede ayudar a acabar con los mitos y rumores más comunes. Puede ser difícil saber en qué fuentes de información se puede confiar. Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) recomiendan que todas las personas de 5 años o más se vacunen contra el COVID-19. Debido a que los niños y jóvenes con necesidades de salud especializadas y capacidades diferentes pueden tener un mayor riesgo de padecer una enfermedad más grave a causa de la COVID-19, se pide a las familias y a los cuidadores que consideren encarecidamente la posibilidad de vacunar a los niños con cualquier condición de salud o capacidad diferente existente. Esta es una gran oportunidad para escuchar y participar con un panel de profesionales médicos y expertos en materia de salud pública de Nuevo México

Hãy tìm hiểu thêm về cách tìm thông tin vắc xin đáng tin cậy cho bạn và con bạn. Trung tâm Kiểm soát và Phòng ngừa Dịch bệnh (CDC) khuyến cáo tất cả mọi người từ 5 tuổi trở lên nên tiêm chủng ngừa COVID-19. Vì trẻ em và thanh thiếu niên có nhu cầu sức khỏe chuyên biệt và khuyết tật có thể có nguy cơ mắc bệnh nặng hơn do COVID-19, các gia đình và người chăm sóc trẻ được khuyến khích cân nhắc kỹ lưỡng việc tiêm chủng cho trẻ em có bất kỳ tình trạng sức khỏe hoặc khuyết tật nền. Đây là cơ hội tuyệt vời để lắng nghe và tham gia với một hội đồng gồm các chuyên gia y tế New Mexico và các chuyên gia về vấn đề sức khỏe cộng đồng.

R-21-231: Language Access & Accessibility
Passed 8-0!!

“The Office of Equity and Inclusion has been working tirelessly to improve language accessibility for our communities here in the City. During the peak of the pandemic, many folks were unable to access important resources to ensure their needs were met. This includes not just non-English speakers, but those with vision, hearing, and communication disabilities. Bypassing this bill, City Council recognizes that this helps make our City more inclusive and accessible for everyone.” Beatriz Valencia, Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs

12/21/2021

Passing this resolution shows our collective commitment towards being a unified City.” Beatriz Valencia, Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs
