ALBUQUERQUE ― Attorney General Hector Balderas, with State Auditor Brian Colón and Treasurer Tim Eichenberg announced Tuesday that they will be holding the Dream Bigger Summit on disability rights and issues impacting people with disabilities.
Taking place Monday, Oct. 28 at Hotel Albuquerque in Albuquerque, the full day summit will focus on creating a more inclusive New Mexico. Presentations will include in-depth discussion from subject matter experts in multiple focus areas, highlighting when people with disabilities are properly informed, supported and protected, they can self-advocate and thrive in an inclusive environment.
“Advocating for people with disabilities and ensuring equal access to meaningful opportunities for prosperity is one of my top priorities as Attorney General,” Balderas said. “Leaders across the State must come together and give a strong voice for all members of our communities.”
“Anytime agencies can join one another in a coordinated effort to provide quality service to our most vulnerable populations, whose needs cross multiple systems, we ensure New Mexicans receive the effective and positive support they deserve from our state government,” Colón said. “As State Auditor, and as a New Mexican who cares deeply for the people in our great state, I am thrilled to participate in the Dream Bigger Summit hosted by the Office of Attorney General.”
Treasurer Eichenberg echoed: “The State Treasurer’s Office is proud to be a part of the Dream Bigger Summit. We have always been committed to creating a more inclusive New Mexico, and we are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with the Office of the Attorney General and the Office of the State Auditor to bring awareness of disability related issues and offer resources and assistance to the wonderful people of our state.”
