The mission of the Early Childhood Coalition is to generate new and innovative ideas for supporting the children/families of our community, who are experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity. We hope to do this by encouraging a strategic, systemic approach to improving early childhood education and homeless-serving systems. We believe that it is important to lift up and highlight the voices of community families, who bring critical perspectives to the table, about their firsthand experiences of barriers & obstacles related to receiving early childhood services. We believe in fostering a diverse community collaboration built on the foundations of equity, transparency, integrity and inclusion. We believe that every single child within our community deserves to grow, thrive and have access to the resources needed, regardless of socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, or ability. Our Early Childhood Coalition is dedicated to cultivating a welcoming environment that feels safe and secure for everyone involved.

Together, we will create the education system New Mexico students deserve.
|Donate||2022 GGG - TRANS New Mexico
The language and words that we use can become powerful beyond measure. Transgender people have lived and died through the worst of this reality. Across the nation and our state, laws are being introduced and passed banning kids from playing sports, banning kids from using the bathroom, banning kids from talking about why they can’t play sports or use the bathroom. People in power are telling an entire generation of kids that they are less than, unworthy of recognition - and this period in our history will have consequences.
The Transgender Research and Narrative Study intends to collect qualitative and quantitative data in order to find the language and words of trans love and acceptance, which we will then scream from the rooftop wherever possible, in the hopes that these messages become powerful beyond measure.
