Let's Talk New Mexico, 4/25 8a: This month, at least ten people have been killed in acts of violence or child abuse in Albuquerque alone. Each sudden death is a deep loss, and the ripple effects are felt throughout New Mexico families, neighborhoods and schools. How have you or your community been affected by violence? What kinds of support do you need? This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’ll remember those lost to violence and discuss ways to cope with grief and community trauma. To share your experience, email LetsTalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show.
