Racial Justice in New Mexico: A Call to Action for Foundations and Philanthropy

Written by Dr. Virginia Necochea, Kalli Consulting Services, LLC
on behalf of the McCune Charitable Foundation.

Several decades after the Civil Rights movement,
we still find ourselves in a historic moment
demanding that the nation address and rectify a
legacy of historic racism that continues to plague
all sectors of society.

The purpose of this project was to capture the
voices of various leaders who have dedicated their
lives to dismantling and disrupting racial inequities
across different sectors of society in the state of
New Mexico, with a major focus of work taking
place in the City of Albuquerque. Interviews
focused especially on the nonprofit sector with
a particular focus on how foundations and
philanthropy could best support continued equity
work.
