Afghan refugee helps others resettle in Albuquerque

These stories serve as a remind that Afghan refugees are not some boogieman but are people who want the same thing: happiness, safety and a chance to provide for their families. We should welcome refugees into our communities with open arms.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Thousands of Afghan refugees will keep arriving at Holloman Air Force Base this month. The Land of Enchantment will be their temporary haven - but it's become a permanent home for another man who escaped Afghanistan years ago.

Inequality Has Cost the U.S. Nearly $23 Trillion Since 1990

“The opportunity to participate in the economy and to succeed based on ability and effort is at the foundation of our nation and our economy.”

Inequality in employment, education and earnings has cost the U.S. economy nearly $22.9 trillion over the past 30 years, a sum that is likely to increase as minority populations expand, according to a new paper from economists including Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Mary Daly.

Report: Indigenous women in the U.S. earn 60 cents on the dollar - Source New Mexico

New Mexico was highlighted for being the worst in the nation for income inequality for Native American women.

White men in the state make $58,153 on a median scale. By the same metric, Native American women make $30,000.

We must do better and demand more equality for Native American women.

New Mexico highlighted for being the worst in the nation when it comes to income inequality for Native American women.

Native women make $.60 on the dollar compared to their white male counterparts. Today on #NativeWomenEqualPay day, we're advocating for equality and an end to the pay gap.

Indigenous leaders seek an apology about the mass grave in Albuquerque - Source New Mexico

“We’re waiting for the tribes to provide guidance on what they would like us to do with the site. We’re hoping to get an idea soon, and we will begin to look at solutions,” said Terry Sloan (Diné/Hopi), tribal liaison with the city’s Office of Equity and Inclusion. “We’re aware of the cultural and spiritual aspects of the site that we know we must address.”

Stakeholders say the public park the city built on top of the site where children from the Albuquerque Indian School are buried should be closed immediately to recreation.
