EQNM's Director talks with New Mexico In Focus about what's next for the LGBTQ movement after marriage equality.


Mission & Vision

Equality New Mexico works for a fair and inclusive New Mexico, educating to change hearts and minds, advocating for those treated unfairly, helping to empower communities and individuals, and convening for collective impact. Our work is centered upon and led by people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ).


The Organization

Equality New Mexico lobbies elected and appointed leaders, sponsors bills and opposes negative legislation, helps empower the community to engage in the political process, and builds and participates in coalitions to achieve equity across the intersections of our lives. Equality New Mexico Foundation conducts public education and outreach to support systemic change and help improve the lives of LGBTQ New Mexicans and their families.
