We’re Empowering New Mexicans to Be the Voice for Kids

New Mexico citizens overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Urge New Mexico Lawmakers to Invest in Kids This Legislative Session

One in four kids in New Mexico live in poverty. Early childhood education has proven to lift kids out of poverty and prepare them for success in school and in life. Therefore, we need long-term sustainable solutions, like the proposed Early Childhood Education and Care Trust Fund. The proposed fund makes financial sense, as well. The return on investment for high-quality birth to five early childhood programs is estimated to be up to 13 percent per child, per year.

We Care About Child Care in NM!

Thank you Senator Heinrich!

51% of American families live in a child care desert. Children who don’t have quality child care often start kindergarten behind – and never catch up. Thank your member of congress for working to address child care deserts today so more kids can thrive!
