TEDxABQ Salon | Protect and Serve ABQ

What does it look like to reshape a relationship between law enforcement and the communities it serves? How can we, as citizens and as a community, ensure our families are safe, and our law enforcement agents are properly equipped to protect and serve in our city?

For the May TEDxABQ Salon, we are bringing together leaders, community members, organizers, professionals and law enforcement agents from a wide range of communities in Albuquerque to share their ideas and visions for what it means to protect and serve in ABQ. This salon seeks to engage in and inspire constructive, non-partisan conversation on how we can address the challenges we now face as a community and create a healthy and safe Albuquerque.

Local light snacks and cash bar

There is no charge for tickets, but a reservation is required for entry. You can reserve your spot beginning 3:00 p.m. on Monday 4/21/14. Please note we can NOT sell tickets at the door.

The TEDxABQSalon is a place to start conversations and spread ideas that matter. We endeavor to bring together thought-leaders, visionaries and curious minds to create an atmosphere of exploration. Due to the intimate style of this event, created to foster discussions, seating is limited. Light snacks and a cash bar will be provided by Slate Street Café.

Space is limited, so get your ticket right away!

Protect and Serve ABQ is a free event for the community, made possible by the New Mexico Conference of Churches.
This TEDxABQ Salon will be simulcast. Visit this page for updates on simulcast locations.

Anointed Women of God,

The women of New Covenant Worship Center are thrilled to invite you to our annual Women’s Conference on May 2, 3, and 4! Our 2014 theme is Divine Alignment (Matthew 6:10). Our guest speaker is the dynamic vessel of the Lord, Pastor Michelle Beal of Los Angeles, California. All sessions on Friday and Saturday will be held at the Sheraton Airport in Albuquerque, NM. We will begin on Friday afternoon with an opening session from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm and a powerful Worship Service at 7:00 pm. By popular demand, we are continuing our special late-night “Sister Chat” on Friday after worship. The Sister Chat is entitled “Late Night With Dr. J.,” featuring Dr. JoAnn Sanders of Sandusky, Ohio with a focus on relationships and women. We invite you to get comfortable during this session and get ready for real talk about issues facing real women. Our conference on Saturday is from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm and will be filled with the Word, worship, and workshops. We will also have some of the best vendors in the area with clothes, jewelry, crafts, and more available throughout the conference. We will conclude our conference on Sunday at New Covenant Worship Center. The cost for all of this is $50.00 which includes a continental breakfast and a lunch on Saturday as well as all conference materials. Please register for two break-out sessions for Saturday. There are also sessions designed for our teen young ladies (Girls Empowered, Motivated, and Saved –GEMS). GEMS registration is $30.

We look forward to a wonderful time of fellowship with you. Take this opportunity to get away and have some time without all of the pressures of life and spend time in the presence of God and in the fellowship of amazing women of God! If you are interested in staying at the Airport Sheraton during the conference, special room rates of $101 (single and double) and $111 (triple and quad) are available by calling (505) 843-7000. You must mention New Covenant to receive this reduced rate. Please make your room reservations as soon as possible because there are a limited number of rooms available.

Please make your plans now to be part of this uplifting weekend of encouragement, growth, and joy. If you have any questions or desire additional information, please contact us at 505-890-5633 or womensconference@newcovenantabq.org. You may mail your registration or register online. The conference registration deadline is April 21 for the $50 rate; after that time, the rate is considered onsite and will be $60. We look forward to an awesome move of God and to glorious fellowship with those who desire to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth and to be women who are divinely aligned with one another and with Jesus Christ!

Open House and Unique Handcraft Fair In The International District

Tthe women and girls of New Mexico Global Pathways a micro-enterprise project of Immigrant And Refugee Resource Village Of Albuquerque are presenting an open house which will feature unique handcrafted beautiful and useful items such as necklaces, rag rugs, bracelets, garments, decorative pillows, tote bags and scarves made by the women of New Mexico Women’s Global Pathways.   All sales will directly benefit the artists. 

After the women lost their work space last year, PB& J opened its doors this January for the women to have a free safe and welcoming space where they receive free training in English, sewing, beading and weaving to improve their livelihoods.  There aren’t many requirements for women who want to join free program of NMWGP—no income level is necessary. As long as people are willing to get involved with the program, help organize events and care for the space, they’re welcome.

Admission to the craft fair is free, but monetary donations will be accepted to help the women purchase materials such as fabrics, which they need in preparation for a fashion show /sales event coming up at the end of August this year as part of the New Mexico Black Expo economic empowerment event.

 NMWGP’s effort is critical for helping empower immigrant, refugee and other New Mexico hard to rich and at risk persons to better outcomes – health-wise, financially, language acquisition, cultural preservation and celebration.
