Child poverty in New Mexico is among the worst in the nation and disparities exist within all indicators of child well-being for children of color.

This presentation, given at the NM Office of African American Affairs’ Black Child Wellness Summit, introduces our Well-Being of Black Children in New Mexico special KIDS COUNT report on how New Mexico’s Black children are doing on some 20 indicators of child well-being.
