Representatives from two worlds met this week to celebrate the National Day of Mexico, and the relationship between New Mexico and its southern neighbors.
Chocolate-dipped churros and fruit kebabs covered in chili powder lined one wall of the Albuquerque Museum lobby Wednesday evening as two guitarists tickled their instruments on an adjacent stage.
Wednesday’s event promoted a panel discussion that will take place Monday in the University of New Mexico’s Student Union Buildling. Starting at 5:30 p.m. in Lobo Rooms A and B, three panelists will talk about the consular presence in New Mexico, the protections offered to families in both countries, and policies implemented throughout the consulate’s history that have promoted empowerment of immigrants and their families.
