Executive Director and President of NM First, Lilly Irvin-Vitela and Program Director of Share NM, Wendy Wintermute discuss the importance of taking a strength-based approach to examining resources and potential future strategies for how to turn things around for New Mexico. By focusing on the relational aspects involved in resource and economic development as well as opening up direct community conversations with those most affected by lack of resources, they are tranforming public policy and re-invisioning and strategizing a future for New Mexico that moves it from the bottom of the rung to the top.
