The New Mexico Teen Pregnancy Coalition

The New Mexico Teen Pregnancy Coalition is announcing our new ways to communicating with our New Mexico youth and our supporters. Over the past few months, we have been working to update our resources and provide even more ways for everyone to stay in touch with what is happening and the success our programs are having on our state.

The NMTPC Website

Our new site makes it even easier to find information on the social and family programs that we offer, local resources for teens and parents, as well as a new easy way to show your support for this great cause. We have also expanded our social network to include Facebook where we can increase adult/teen communication about sex, increase sexually active teens’ access to contraceptives, and to decrease the number of unwanted pregnancies, STDs and HIV/AIDS. Our neighborhood-based initiative aimed at helping adults, parents, and community leaders is coming to Twitter! This provides another platform to communicate effectively with young people about reducing adolescent sexual risk-taking.

Everyday Democracy Strong Starts Initiative

In the spring of 2010, Everyday Democracy launched Strong Starts for Children. Through this initiative we're working closely with five communities in New Mexico to help them find ways for all kinds of people to talk, work, and take action together on issues related to the success of all children from birth to eight. Because children exist as part of families and communities, efforts to help children must support whole systems. In this initiative, people are working on such success factors as school readiness, linked systems for health and education, access for families to development and training for employment, financial literacy and educational opportunities.

As part of the initiative, Everyday Democracy is:

  • helping communities build on what they are already doing, and involve all kinds of people in talking about and taking action on creating success for all children.
  • providing resources and tools to sustain the kind of public participation that leads to problem solving, policy change, and improved conditions in all children’s lives, particularly those who are most vulnerable.
