AFSC envisions self-determined communities in New Mexico that have the capacity to feed and care for our children, elders, and neighbors (human, animal, and plant).
The New Mexico Program supports the empowerment of the people of New Mexico by:
· Accompanying historic and land-based communities in their work to protect access to land and water;
· Growing food and medicine;
· Increasing access to healthy food by underserved populations (including a focus on schools and Early Childhood Education centers);
· Stimulating local economies; and
· Developing grassroots leadership.
AFSC provides training, technical support and infrastructure development. We also do policy advocacy and popular education community organizing. All our work is in partnership with individuals, communities, and organizations. We are committed to a more just and equitable future for all.
