This week on New Mexico in Focus, producer Sarah Gustavus sits down with an advocate from the Woman’s Resource Center at The University of New Mexico to talk about what the national conversation about sexual harassment and assault means for New Mexico.

Additionally, Gustavus sits down with the organizer of a symposium showing how to match New Mexicans who have left the state but want to return home, with employers and investors who can make that happen.

Also, NMiF host Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists discuss top stories of the week, including the horrific shooting which caused the death of two students at a high school in Aztec, sexual harassment allegations by a New Mexico lobbyist and weighs in on the Lt. Governor’s race.

NMiF regularly airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and repeats Sundays at 7 a.m. on Channel 5.1, and Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. on Channel 9.1, except during pledge drives.
