The African American Museum and Cultural Center seeking sponsors for
Teen Washinton DC trip July 27-July 31

The museum has the unique opportunity to take (10) middle and high school students to Washington

DC., from July 27 thru July 31, to visit the newly opened National Museum of African American History

and Culture
. The trip will include visits to African American Landmarks in D.C., The Air and Space

Museum, The MLK Memorial, The Frederick Douglas home
and many other historic sites. We will also

visit the U
.S. Department of Energy and the New Mexico Congressional Delegation

We believe this experience will help maintain for these young people a vital connection with their legacy, past, present and future. The museum will assist these young people in tying NM African American history into the larger picture of African American History throughout United States

 We will meet with the young people twice before the trip to give them some areas of focus and connection between NM history and US history including: 

...The military and the journey of the Buffalo Soldier to the West and NM

 ...The Homestead Act, the Exodusters and the building of Black Townships (Blackdom NM)

 ...Segregation in schooling throughout the country and in NM. Along with Jim Crow laws

 ...Patterns of resistance through individuals, organizations, and social clubs.

The museum is excited to have these young people experience walking through a museum and seeing people who look like them on the wall. They will be able to see the accomplishments of people who look like them, knowing with a certainty that yes, we were here, we are here and we have contributed to the greatness, the very soul of this country.

The young people will report back to their NM community on their return through an open forum at a reception sponsored by the museum.  All donors will be recognized at this special reception.

Dear friends, The University of New Mexico has a rich tradition of achievements by students and alumni over our long history. We lost of one our great alums in 2015 when Adolph Plummer passed away.

Adolph’s legacy includes incredible athletic achievements as a member of the UNM Track & Field Program. In 1961, Plummer became the NCAA Champion in the 440 and was a three-time All-American. His greatest achievement on the track occurred in May 1963 in Tempe, AZ, when he shocked future Olympic Champion Ulis Williams on his home track with a 44.9 second world record in the 440. While Adolph's athletics accolades are countless, so are the lives he touched as a long-time educator at both UNM as well as in Colorado.

A group of Adolph's friends and former teammates want to honor him in a way that will stand the test of time with a statue that will live at the UNM Track and Field Complex. We need your help to make it happen. We have a goal of raising $60,000 to build and erect the statue.

Please consider making a gift to the Adolph Plummer Tribute Fund either online through this link or via mail to:
Adolph Plummer Tribute Fund (202865)
UNM Foundation
700 Lomas Blvd. NE 
Two Woodward Center 
Albuquerque, NM 87102

(Make checks payable to UNM Foundation w/ Adolph Plummer in the memo line) If we are unable to reach our overall goal, there will be an alternative recognition befitting of this UNM legend. Thank you for helping recognize Adolph and his legacy.

Sincerely, Harold Bailey B.S. '69, M.A. '71, Ph.D.'75
John Cordova B.S. '61
Larry Ryan Vice President for University Development UNM Foundation

Come Together! IRRVA Van Fundraiser


Again! After-School Tutoring was canceled at IRRVA today because the van has broken down. Again. On a day when our country's doors are being closed to refugees--again--donating to this cause is one action you can take to make our country a more welcoming place for the refugees who are already here. What kind of refugees? Kids who have homework to get done! And, again, thank you to those who generously donate their time to IRRVA and to those who have so kindly given to this campaign for a new van.

Rep. Sheryl Williams Stapleton elected House Majority Leader


She will be the first African American to serve as House Majority Leader in New Mexico. Williams Stapleton has served in the New Mexico House since 1995 and has previously served as House Majority Whip and House Minority Whip.

“I am honored to have been elected by the House Democratic Caucus as House Majority Leader. We are united and ready to lead the House to move our state in the right direction,” Williams Stapleton said. “Working families in New Mexico have been frustrated, and we are ready to talk about solutions to bring them economic development and jobs.”

Wings For L.I.F.E. – Life-skills Imparted to Families through Education, is an empowerment program that provides life-skills, education, training, and support for family members/caregivers of prisoners (returning citizens) and at-risk youth. Some of the educational topics that are addressed include single parenting, finances – how to stretch a dollar, discipline, acceptance issues, prison visits, feeding a family, substance abuse and signs, reintegration and reunification issues, legal issues, public defenders, work/job issues, holidays, and anything else of interest to the group. Search Institute’s® 40 Developmental Assets® are incorporated into the training. 

In our society where children are all at risk in one way or another, children whose parent(s) are in prison face even more challenges.

Everyone is welcome at our FREE meetings. There is a Pre-K and After-dinner Tutoring Program for the children.

If you’d like to know more about Wings we are offering a Volunteer Training session on Jan. 30, Monday night, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at 2015 Wyoming Blvd NE Suite J. Please RSVP so we have enough chairs. THANKS!
