Outreach and Partnerships

nmilc_logo_webheaderWe are excited to announce the official start of a new partnership between First Christian Church of Santa Fe and the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center!

Starting this week, staff attorneys and legal assistants covering northern New Mexico will be working at the church to support equal access to justice for immigrants. New Mexico Immigrant Law Center offers affordable and pro-bono access to legal services.

A huge thanks to the amazing moving-in crew for bringing positive energy and a collaborative spirit – we are off to a great start!  For more information on their work, visit:
