Southwest Women’s Law Center is always at work on the issues that impact women and girls around reproductive rights, economic security, and gender discrimination.
Throughout the years, we have advocated for many bills at the Legislature and continue to fight for policies that lift women and their families out of poverty.
Currently in Legislative Session:
HB 38 – Paid Family & Medical Leave Act
New Mexico workers should not face the loss of their livelihood because they need to take time away from work due to a health condition or family care-giving responsibilities. By passing the PFMLA, we can ensure economic security for New Mexico workers and communities.
HB 44 – Unemployment Compensation Restriction Changes
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nearly every part of New Mexican’s lives. Health, education, family responsibilities, employment, and so much more have been disrupted by this public health crisis. We owe it to NM residents to do all we can to mitigate those impacts.
