Respect ABQ Women

Respect ABQ Women

We Respected ABQ Women and we won! In a historic victory, Albuquerque voters defeated an attempt to limit access to abortion by a huge margin on special election November 19th.  

Strong Families New Mexico, staffed by Forward Together, Strong Families Leadership Team member Young Women United and Strong Families New Mexico partner, New Mexico Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice were leaders in all aspects of the campaign strategy.  

The campaign ran a dynamic, effective grassroots campaign that was truly New Mexican: it reflected the lived experiences of our communities and ensured that communities of color, people of faith and young people were deeply engaged in all aspects of the campaign. It built off the principles of our Strong Families work, bringing a proactive and inclusive frame to a winning campaign.
