This week on New Mexico in Focus, Correspondent Antonia Gonzales and Producer Sarah Gustavus examine how one organization in California is using cultural activities to improve health outcomes for individuals and families.
Gustavus talks with an organizer from Juntos: Our Air, Our Water, an environmental advocacy group focusing on Latino families, to talk about their clean air proposal for Albuquerque.
Also this week, NMiF host Gene Grant and the Line panelists take a look at both old and new sources of energy: increased production in New Mexico’s oil patch, and a solar energy plant being built in the Navajo Nation.
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.
