Economic Security

We lift children out of poverty when women achieve economic security.

What stands in our way? Are there laws and resources to ensure that women are treated fairly and paid equitably?

With funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, SWLC has begun an initiative to better understand the economic challenges faced by women and their families throughout the state. Through outreach, the Law Center will listen to the needs and challenges of New Mexico women, educate them on the laws and rights that protect their interests, and advocate with them to improve conditions for their economic security.
