This week, NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS looks at workplace safety. A recent mass shooting in Oregon has been in the headlines for the past week. Domestic violence can also lead to acts of violence in public places, including schools and offices. How can companies and organizations address domestic violence and prepare for acts of violence during the workday? Correspondent Stan Wilson sits down with Richard Price from the Soteria Group: Safety by Design and Lisa Weisenfeld from the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
Leaders in New Mexico often discuss potential solutions for addressing the state’s high poverty rate. Ona Porter from Prosperity Works sits down with producer Sarah Gustavus to talk about how Prosperity Kids encourages young people to save money and plan for their future after high school.
