This virtual panel discussion with harm reduction advocates examines community-academic research partnerships by investigating issues around power imbalances between the researcher and the researched cognitive social justice, and inequitable participatory burdens. In the end, the panel recommends promising practices that address research and academic practices, systems, and rules that can be changed to result in the equitable distribution of power and prioritize the voices and lived experiences of community groups such as harm reduction advocates and people who use drugs (PWUDs).
On August 8th, 2023, community leaders from around the state gathered at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque for a two-day Town Hall tackling issues of energy equity in New Mexico. The Town Hall was a capstone event for NM EPSCoR’s project—NM SMART Grid Center— a five-year, $24 million, NSF-funded project focused on research and workforce training for next-generation electric power production and delivery.
Often there are simply too many accomplishments to fit into our tiny kudos section. This month, we've compiled a list of kudos-worthy accomplishments by NM EPSCoR faculty that we missed the first go round. Have something we missed in our previous newsletters and below?

Join our conversation and community building around Native Science, Arts, Culture and Mathematics Education in NM. We will explore questions including: What does it mean to be in STEM? How can it be inclusive? What does this mean for community building around our overlapping roles such as students, educators, professionals, parents, community members? We are hoping this conversation will lead to networking and collective goal setting to reimagine the future of science in Native Communities.
