 Keynote Speaker: New Mexico Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham 


Congresswoman Lujan Grisham, a 12th-generation New Mexican, has dedicated her life to serving her community, fighting for seniors and veterans, and building an economy that works for all New Mexicans. Congresswoman Lujan Grisham has built a reputation – both in New Mexico and in Congress – as a hardworking representative who always puts her constituents first. 

A long-time advocate for the most vulnerable citizens, Congresswoman Lujan Grisham is working to lift the state out of poverty by creating opportunities for New Mexico families. She is pushing an ambitious plan, called CARE Corps, that would provide support for family caregivers and help meet the growing demand for the care of aging and disabled Americans.

A former small business owner, Bernalillo County Commissioner, Secretary of Health, and Secretary of Aging & Long-Term Services, Rep. Lujan Grisham now services on the three committees in the U.S. House of Representatives: Budget Committee, Agriculture Committee, and Oversight & Government Reform. She was also selected by her colleagues to serve as 1st Vice Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
