7th Annual KIDS COUNT Conference – Framing the Future for Families: The Road Ahead.

June 26, 2019 8:30 AM
Embassy Suites 1000 Woodward Pl NE Albuquerque, NM

This year’s conference will focus on possibilities and partnership – how we can work collaboratively to leverage the immense opportunities in front of us to help kids thrive. We have entered a time of rich opportunity – the voters having spoken clearly in choosing leaders with a commitment to investing in the well-being of kids and families. With new leadership in the governor’s office and new members in the state House of Representatives, the time is now to enact evidence-based policy solutions that will benefit not only our children, but all of us throughout the state. This will take partnership, coordination, and persistence. Government, the business community, philanthropic partners, the nonprofit sector, and families must join together to create sustainable solutions to the struggles faced by too many in our state, especially by the youngest among us.

Newly elected Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham will be this year’s KEYNOTE Speaker, along with other state and community leaders who will speak to the ways in which their leadership is laying a foundation for the road ahead by investing in kids and families. NM Voices will invite several community leaders to offer Breakout Learning Sessions this year to share and elevate the expertise and passion for improving child well-being that exists throughout the state. And, as always, we’ll honor courageous advocates across New Mexico working on behalf of kids through the NM Voices Spirit of Hope Awards.
