Five Days of Gender Justice Was a Huge Success
Thank you for joining us this past week for Five Days of Gender Justice, the digital launch campaign to share the findings, data and stories from our new two-part research report, The Heart of Gender Justice in New Mexico: Intersectionality, Economic Security, and Health Equity.The research was conducted in collaboration with a team from the University of New Mexico and includes voices from community dialogues as well as data analysis around women’s economic security and health by race and ethnicity. Below is a list of what we did, in case you missed anything!

Over the coming year, we plan to bring the research findings back to the participating communities and beyond. We also hope to share them with other funders as well as policymakers.
Join us at the New Mexico Voices for Children Annual Kids Count Conference on June 26th where we will be presenting the research findings along with community partners. We’ll also present the findings at the Women’s Funding Network international conference in San Francisco this fall.
A final take away from our Five Days of Gender Justice: To focus on gender justice is to acknowledge that race, class, history, immigration status, sexual identity and the environment have enormous and inextricable effects on health outcomes and quality of life for women and girls across the state. We believe that this is the heart of gender justice in New Mexico.
