Crossroads for Women Recognized by New Mexico Legislature

On February 19, 2015, New Mexico State Senator Lisa Torraco introduced a memorial recognizing Crossroads for Women (CRFW) for outstanding community service. The memorial passed the Senate with a unanimous 43-0 vote and honors the advocacy work of CRFW clients and staff advocacy which has generated concrete legislative proposals that reflect the perspectives of women working to break the cycle of incarceration. Senator Torraco thanked representatives from Crossroads for almost perfect attendance at the meetings for the bipartisan Criminal Justice Reform Subcommittee, and for their help to "push the committee in ways they might not have otherwise gone.”
