First and foremost, we would like to thank the mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunties, uncles, youth, children, and other community members from all over the world who came together to break bread with on another and share their wisdom and experiences of living within Albuquerque. You have gifted us with your courage and your time in order to make our city a better place for all of our families.
We would also like to thank our volunteers, interpreters, translators, child care givers, and community chefs who supported our events and nourished our souls.
We are incredibly grateful for the core partner organizations of Global505 that supported this project and give it life, including the New Mexico Asian Family Center, Artful Life, Women’s Global Pathways through the Immigrant and Refugee Resource Village of Albuquerque, CVNM Education Fund Juntos: Our Air, Our Water, Together 4 Brothers, Catholic Charities, the Refugee Well-Being Project, and Pivot Education.
We extend our heartfelt appreciation for our partners in the work that supported us with data and resources, including the City of Albuquerque’s Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, as well as the New Mexico Center for Law and Poverty. In addition, we would not have done this without the support and technical assistance offered through the New Mexico Health Equity Partnership, an initiative at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, without which this project would not have been possible.
