As Attorney General, and as a citizen of New Mexico, I am very concerned about community violence. Community violence includes, but is not limited to: teen dating violence; human/drug trafficking; Internet crimes against children; bullying; and youth gang violence. New Mexico ranks 2nd in the nation for death due to child abuse and 6th for neglect--these alone are startling statistics. Then there is human trafficking, modern day slavery that involves controlling a person through force, fraud, or coercion to exploit the victim for forced labor, sexual exploitation, or both. Human trafficking is a crime that happens in New Mexico, often times right under our noses.
For all the reasons above, I am asking you to participate in the important and timely 2nd Annual Community Violence Summit in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The event is scheduled for Friday, June 27, 2014, at the Copper Pointe Church, 10500 Copper Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM 87123.
The Community Violence Summit will highlight topics such as: Cyber-bullying in our schools and community; youth and gun violence; sex trafficking of minors; dating violence; strengthen communities through education; and how to use statistics to create social change. This second Summit will provide us with newly developed best practices; improve the framework for better information sharing; and open more lines of communication among the stakeholders.
I believe it is important that we come together periodically in events such as this to assess where we have been and where we need to go to assure safer communities throughout New Mexico. Please consider this my personal invitation to attend and help us make our state a better place in which to live and prosper.
For more information, please contact Ms. Heather Sandoval at 505/222-9172 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing you at the 2nd Annual Community Violence Summit.
