209 Including Diverse Voices at the Policy Table with Adriann Barboa

On the Well Woman Show this month, I talk to Commissioner elect Adriann Barboa, in Bernalillo County's District 3. Adriann currently serves as the Policy Director at Forward Together, where she works with families and communities across the state of New Mexico to bring about a culture shift and policies centered on the lived experiences of everyday New Mexicans. Adriann is a connector, an organizer, a trainer, and loves to spend her time with families and communities working together toward building the world we all want to live in. Adriann brings 20 plus years’ experience in the direct service and social justice sectors, working primarily on issues of gender, reproductive, anti-violence, education, and criminal justice in Indigenous and communities of color.

We discuss

-How Adriann hopes to bring diverse stakeholders to the table

- Working across party lines, and connecting people

- Why it's important for women to work together for change.
