Take A Stand

Take a Stand for New Mexico Women and Girls

NewMexicoWomen.Org (NMW.O) works to advance opportunities for women and girls statewide so that they can lead healthy, self-sufficient and empowered lives. Given the challenges facing women and girls in New Mexico, particularly those living in rural areas, NMW.O supports and promotes programs that work on their behalf. New Mexico’s women and girls need policymakers, representatives from the private sector, and communities at large to take a stand for them by investing in their overall health and well-being. 

In New Mexico today:
  • 81% of girls are not proficient in science.
  • 21% of NM women will be raped at some point in their lives.
  • 60% of NM girls ages birth - 3 are not in pre-school.
  • 32% of NM women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
  • 14% of NM women over 65 live in poverty.
Let’s Reverse These Trends! The Take a Stand for New Mexico Women and Girls campaign aims to raise one dollar for each of the 1.04 million New Mexican women and girls. Whether you invest one dollar or ten thousand dollars, you are taking a stand to build a foundation to improve the lives of women and girls in our state.  Show your support for NewMexicoWomen.Org and Take a Stand for women and girls in New Mexico. Make a gift, volunteer your time, or reach out to us on Facebook and share your thoughts!
